Former Member Testimony

We personally know many former members of the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG).  Many are friends.  Some are family members.  Through this web site we also come into contact with many other folks with stories just like ours.  Over time we get to know them well, and we encourage them to speak out about their experience.  Many of our friends still have lasting emotional and spiritual wounds.  Below is a collection of their stories.  Maybe your experience is similar?  You can help these folks by praying for them, and by commenting on the articles to let them know you support them.
