NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Amy Compston and the Amy For Africa mission will be getting national television exposure on the world’s largest Christian television network June 2.
Compston was a guest on “Huckabee” that will air at 8 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. Central on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee hosts the weekly hour. Amy was named as one of “Huck’s Heroes” in a short segment on the show. It was filmed Friday night.
“(Former Arkansas) Governor Huckabee was so incredibly gracious and kind,” Compston said. “He took the time to sign autographs for everyone in the studio audience. He has a huge heart and it shined through tonight. He and his staff made us feel so comfortable and welcome.”
Compston, husband Chris and AFA videographer and friend Rob Barber received the star treatment from the show, including being driven to the studio by Huckabee’s staff.
“I stand amazed once again at God’s amazing grace,” Amy said. “We made some unbelievable connections. It was such a blessing. Our God is so good!”
The program can be viewed on Dish Network channel 260 and on DirecTV channel 372. It is also available on most cable networks. It can also be seen on tbn.org and on Huckabee’s Facebook page.
