Wonby1 - From atheism to evangelism

Elizabeth was raised in a home that didn’t believe in God. The very concept of religion was foreign to her. And she married a man who felt the same way. But all that changed when their son was born with a rare genetic disorder that only affects 1 in 50,000 babies. Elizabeth’s boy was given a slim chance of living past the age of 2. She and her husband, Mike, were devastated. And Elizabeth found herself furious at a God she didn’t believe in.

Wonby1 - Challenging statistics with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus!

Natalie is a Millennial who’s about to graduate from the University of Southern California. She grew up in a nominal Christian home, but her parents stopped going to church at some point in her teens. As she recalls, they just didn’t see the point. So stepping onto one of the most secular college campuses in America didn’t bode well for the place of faith in Natalie’s future. After all, statistics show that 59% of Millennials who grow up in the church will abandon their faith in college. But God doesn’t worry about statistics or probabilities…he’s just waiting for the chance to swoop in and change one life with His love. And that’s what he did for Natalie.

Wonby1 - Shannon’s Story: Sharing the Gospel in Everyday Life

Let’s proclaim the Gospel to all of creation! That call sounds wonderful in Sunday church or during personal devotions (see Mark 16:15).

To Shannon, it doesn’t matter whether you’re out shopping, at a restaurant, or even going to an important doctor’s appointment. Opportunities for Christ are everywhere!
