Guest Book

The Bible answers our questions about death by informing us that God is going to remove death that mankind has experienced for thousands of years (Revelation 20:12-13). The scriptures also assures, us that God is eager to resurrect your loved one who are now sleeping in the grave. 1 Corinthians 15:26 shows that God views death as an enemy. Please take time to talk with God in prayer during this grievous time: (Psalms 55:22). May this be of comfort to you, at this time of your loss!
