Charlotte Sanchez (Director of Digital Evangelism Strategy @Luis Palau Association)
Charlotte accepted Christ at 15 out of a deep season of depression. She began using the available technologies and arts at her disposal to share the Gospel. Creating videos for school projects, designing testimony booklets and church invitations, and leading friends to Christ on Instant Messenger were a part of her high school experience. She felt the call of God to, “Tell my story,” and began sharpening skills to tell that story.
