this week we hear audio from an interview of the Vanderburg family and their amazing story of grace, redemption and love.

the Vanderburgs shared their story last november with Brian Treadaway and the rest of the encounter tribe.

we hope the story gives you a glimmer of the love, forgiveness, redemption and grace the Advent season is all about.
