October 24, 2016 | Blog,

October 13, 2010 will go down in history as the completion date for the greatest underground rescue operation ever accomplished—the Chilean Miners Rescue.

My thoughts have gravitated to the final words that Jesus uttered from the cross. There are actually seven statements that He made from the cross.
