Christ In Action, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1982 by Dr. Denny & Sandy Nissley, has grown into an international ministry touching lives around the world.

This week we talk to Brian Sims of the Disaster Logistics Board. As you may have heard that infantry fights the battles, but logistics wins the wars. That saying is true.
