Open Doors Live Podcast - Episode 65 - An Interview With A Bible Smuggler

Join Mike Gore for an interview with Dean Keaney, founder of Open Doors Australia, who played a critical role in one of the most successful Bible smuggles of the 20th century.

As the radioman for ‘Project Pearl’, Dean sent an encrypted message to thousands of Chinese believers lying in wait on a secluded Chinese beach, where one million Bibles were to be delivered in a single night.

Hear Dean's recollections of what happened on the mission and what God had to teach him.

In this episode:

• What happens when you try to smuggle one million Bibles into China
• The revival of the underground church
• How God can use the ordinary for something extraordinary
