Bob became acquainted with Advent through presentations by Mark Miller at his church and through working on the Local Outreach team. He says that when he visits Advent facilities and hears the testimony of students there, “I’m floored with how, through the work of the dedicated staff and the Holy Spirit, these students are in the process of changing their lives for the better– in miraculous ways.”
