Ginger Sanders Shares Stories from the Front Lines at NRB 2016
Author and speaker Ginger Sanders attended the 2016 National Religious Broadcasters Proclaim 16 International Christian Media Convention (NRB) which was held Feb. 23-26 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. During the conference, she met with media and industry leaders about her experiences as a chaplain with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, many of which are detailed in her book, He Goes Before Us.
Sanders was kept busy during the 4-day event, meeting and interviewing with such influential outlets as Bill Martinez Live!, Assist News, Frontpage Radio, Body Builders TV, New Life FM and Life Today, among others.
If Sanders’ experiences have taught her anything, it is that bad things happen to good people. “Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, and man-made disasters…it is not a pleasant thing to contemplate, but it is nonetheless a universal truth, an incomprehensible paradox,” she acknowledges. “The human condition is frail, but God is bursting with life! Through all this pain and grief, God allows us to be His hands and feet, offering those who are suffering the love of Jesus through the power and strength of God.”
Sanders has experienced more than her share of natural and man-made disasters. From devastating floods in Iowa to tornado ravaged towns in Alabama; from the scene of the horrific theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, to the unfathomable grief following the tragic school shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, Sanders and her fellow chaplains continually see God at work. Yes, bad things happen to good people, but Sanders has also seen lives changed and souls saved through God’s amazing grace. In every situation, Sanders says she and her fellow chaplains have witnessed the dramatic presence of God, proving that only God can orchestrate these situations.
