ìFor God has comforted His people, and He will show mercy to His own afflicted ones.î (Isaiah 49:13b) May God continue to provide you and your family with peace and comfort during this difficult time. The Bible shares a wonderful resurrection hope for future. I pray that you find comfort in the wonderful promises of John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15.
