A Crossing in My Life

Esther Wysong, a recent graduate of Missouri Baptist University, shares about an event in her past which drastically changed her life. “It caused me to cling to my faith in God and learn to trust Him with my future, no matter what it might hold, as He changed my story from one of hurt, pain and brokenness to one of hope, forgiveness and joyfulness.”
