Summer of Salvation

SummerofSalvationThe following stories will share with you the joy, the excitement, the fun, and the feeling of being bathed in “Sonlight.”

You’ll experience this through the eyes, ears, and hearts of Dan Wajda, Ian Wettlaufer, Andrew and Stella MacKereth, Oracia Morris, Katie Betts, Melanie Ortiz, Lily Beth Ciriaco, and Jet Troublefield, among many other contemporary evangelists.
