Life After Death
We shouldn't be scared to die.  Neither should we be for our loved ones. The most amazing
thing is that any person can choose where they want to go: "heaven or hell" before they
die.  Christ is the way to heaven.

Three years ago, my granny was still alive.  She was the kindest person I ever met.  Always
reachable on the phone to share the joys and struggles of my life.  I was also her favorite
grand-child, having known me as a baby.

I used to buy her gifts whenever I was going to visit her.  I  never hesitated to travel seven
hours by train to come and stay with her for a few days.  We used to have little arguments
when I was a teenager,  then, we became the best friends as time went on. She used to
spoil me a lot as most grannies do.   

The only problem was that each time I talked to her about the Lord, she used to tell me that
she knew that there was something.  But what????  That was the question.  She used to  
say: "If we ever meet in heaven,  we'll have a lot to say to each other".

However, I preached the Gospel of Jesus to her on numerous  occasions.  Sharing my
personal encounter with God.  The Word says that if we confess with our mouth that Jesus
is Lord, and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, we will be saved.

Because of my deep love for my granny, I cried before God for her salvation.  I also prayed
for her with my church at one time.  She was sick in hospital for a week.  At 80 years old,
you never know what tomorrow holds.  It's better to contribute to their eternal life after death.

This life on earth is only for a time.  Life after death is forever and we need to make sure
that we will be in heaven with the Lord.

The prayer of a righteous man makes much avail. God answers the prayers of a righteous
man.  He wants to save us from our sins .

Three years ago, she died after falling into a sudden coma.  I wasn't able to be at her
bedside as she lived in France. I was living in London.  You wouldn't imagine the kind of
inner peace I had in my soul. I didn't cry.  I wasn't even upset as I knew that God has
answered my prayer and had fulfilled his wonderful Word.  She was finally in heaven  with
God Almighty .

I just want to encourage you to keep on praying and believing for the salvation of your loved
ones.  God can send his angels and people you will never meet to save your family. As long
as you believe.

To conclude, I just want to say that we can all make a difference in the lives of our loved
ones.  Instead of being worried, thinking "Am I going to see them again? Are they  safe?
They are on the point of dying."  We have to make sure by our prayers and preaching to
them the Gospel of Jesus that they can have eternal life.  When they die, we won't have to  
worry about them being OK.  We can know in our heart that they have made their peace
with God, enjoying the blessings of Heaven. It's just a matter of time before we join them.

God bless you all and keep up the good works.
