“He didn’t abandon me, even though I was running from Him.” Elgin became a Christian when he was young, but went through a time of rebellion in his young adult years.

Growing up in a Christian home, Tamara had a good understanding of what Christ dying on the cross meant for her, but she felt her understanding of the gospel was limited. That understanding was fast-tracked when she moved to Haiti for a little under a year. During that time, God revealed new factes of his character and grace to Tamara. Even when the details were not settled, God provided the peace only he can provide. Tamara’s story will give you a glimpse of how the gospel is tied to every part of life.

During this trying time, God used people and circumstances to remind the Gilfillans of his sovereignty & provision. Watch their story to see how their faith grew in this time of seeing God work in even the smallest details.
