I came back to my room to take a nap after I watched John Hagee this morning and everyone is still sleeping. I had just crawled into bed when someone on the phone started screaming, “NO…NO.” Then she was wailing. People started waking up and running into the hallway to see what was going on. At least 20 people went out there. Everyone cared. Everyone wanted to comfort her. That is the amazing thing about this community. There is so much caring and love for one another. So much support. I didn’t go out in the hall because I know there was nothing I could do for her. So instead I got on my knees and prayed. I could hear her screaming and she got so sick that she threw up. I just kept on praying until they took her to the clinic. My eyes filled up with tears because I could feel the pain she was going through. We share each others pain. If one of us goes though something, the whole community goes through it.
Jesus said to “share each others burdens.” And what I just witnessed really brought those words to life. This the 3rd death that we’ve had in the one week that I have been here. I know that death is a part of life. But it is still so hard to accept and deal with. It brings me great comfort to know that if anything happens to my family we know where we are going. And death in this life is only the beginning of eternity with God! If anybody is reading this and is not 100% sure that you know where you are going when you die, I pray that you will examine your life and change what needs to be changed. Get in touch with Jesus and rededicate your life to Him! Life is a gift from God and you don’t know when your time is up. So Be Ready!!
