Esther

This past year the CrossFire Assembly Women’s Ministry went through Charles Swindoll’s Bible study on Esther: A Woman of Strength & Dignity. I love Esther.

Add to this list from the records of the church your personal observation and experience, and always there is the cost of passion unto blood. Such prayer prevails.
