Welcome to The Big Impact Ep 261 - How $65.43 Changed George Forever 

The story of George Puia is beyond fascinating, especially when you consider that a self-described "stoner hippie" went through a complete life change when he began following Christ...and that the introduction took place in a most unusual way.

This is one of the great Jesus Revolution stories you'll ever hear, and somehow $65.43 is at the center of it. Listen, share, and be amazed at the wonderful ways the Lord works!
