On today’s episode of Engaging Missions, our guest – Annette Eastis – shares a powerful testimony of healing, forgiveness, and love. Although she went through very traumatic experiences as a child, she has now found rest and hope in the love of Christ.
She and her husband work as ministers across the country by reaching out to kids at skate parks and sharing the Gospel with them. As the skaters come to know Christ, Annette and her husband plant a church there and move to a new place needing Jesus. Because of the miraculous working of Jesus in her life, Annette has now been able to bring hope and love to those who are hurting.
