In this time of great sadness there is good news. The Bible promises a resurrection of the dead to perfect health on a beautiful paradise earth. The scriptures prove that this will happen in the near future. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:3, 4; 2 Timothy 3:1-5) Please don’t lose hope. You are in our prayers.
