Michael Salamida

Retreat Leader

Hi everyone!  My name is Michael Salamida and I am from Pensacola, FL.  I am 21 years old and I have 6 siblings, one niece, and one nephew.  I enjoy many fun activities including snowboarding, frisbee, watching any super hero movie, and playing board games with friends.  I graduated high school in Pensacola back in 2016 and I have been with Pure Witness ever since.

This is my third year with Pure Witness Ministries.  I am very excited to continue my journey doing what I love to do: sharing the joy of the Gospel with others and encouraging them to set Christ at the heart of their lives.  It's worth the giving of self 100% to show every student we've ever ministered to how much God loves them.  I love the joy of these students' faces as they walk away changed that day and their excitement to share with their parents what they learned.  As they walk by you, giving you the best high five ever, singing the song that you taught them.  The joy that the love of Jesus brings them in a 2 hour retreat -- that's what I love.  And I am very excited to continue to share this message with students this year!

I continue to pray for the students I get to witness to in retreats to come and in retreats past.  Thank you for all of your love and support that you have all given the last few years.  Every prayer goes a long way.  Due to the prayers and support from our monthly donors, we have witnessed to thousands of students over the last 7 years.  This ministry cannot continue to reach out to students without people's financial support and most importantly not without the continued prayers of so many people.

Thank you and God Bless,
Michael Salamida
