In this video, you will hear the true stories of seven ordinary people whose lives were completely transformed in the pursuit of their destinies. They came from diverse backgrounds and cultures, but with one common desire: They all longed to know their purpose in life.
The revelation of that purpose, combined with a willingness to take steps of faith, led each one into their individual, God-ordained destiny. As you watch, you will sense their fulfillment and joy, the kind that only comes when you know you are doing what God created you to do.
