Stan and Sally Bragg
Stan and Sally Bragg met at a mild-may dance in Bruce Country. Soon after, they got married. They spent years in the party lifestyle, but it was the passing of Stan's father in law, that caused him to search for more out of life. A pastor and co-worker shared the love of Jesus with him and he accepted Christ. The change was so dramatic that Sally thought aliens took over her husband! But, it was the change in his behavior that softened her heart towards God. While at home folding laundry, Sally tuned into 100 Huntley Street and she identified with a woman who was sharing her testimony on the program. They asked people if they would like to accept Jesus into their heart and Sally made the choice! Today, the Bragg's have been leading Kids Church ministry on the reserve of Saugeen First Nation for the past 19 years. The kids who attended are now leaders in the program.
