Are you suffering? Are people blaming you for it? Is your family turning their back on you?  Do you feel ostracized by those who should be supporting you? Have you felt Christ’s comfort yet?

If you are seeking answers, take the time to listen as Pastor Wil Owens unpacks Christ’s most exceptional miracle and helps us “see” what we can expect to experience when we meet Christ and accept His healing touch.
