Hour 1: In Pursuit of Love

Born and raised in a small Oregon town, our guest was a varsity athlete and honor roll student with a promising future. Then a predator pretending to be her boyfriend lured her into a web of lies that sent her down a path she never imagined possible. For nearly six years, she was sold across the underground world of sex trafficking in Las Vegas. She was branded, beaten, told when to sleep and what to wear, and traded between traffickers. Forced into a dark sisterhood, she formed bonds with her trafficker and three other women, creating a false sense of family. During that time, God began revealing Himself to her. Amid her exploitation, she found the hope she needed to survive. Don't miss this gripping story ripped right from the headlines of our day.

Hour 2: From Mecca to Christ

One of our guests today is a medical doctor who turned evangelist. His father is a mufti in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Once set to bring jihad to the world, he came to know Jesus Christ as Savior and wants to bring true peace in Jesus to Muslims and lost people everywhere. Five times he faced death, but God spared him so that he could tell Muslims and lost people worldwide about how Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Our other guest is a pastor who played a key role in the life of this Saudi physician. Fascinating conversation coming your way on today’s broadcast.
