    Dear Family,
    When sometimes we feel we cannot endure any longer. When we turn to God’s word the Bible we can find real hope and comfort. The Bible writer Paul offered hope of relief from that “last enemy” death. He wrote: “Death is to be brought to nothing”. “The last enemy to be abolished is death.” [ 1 CORINTHIANS 15:26] Why could Paul be so sure of that? Because he had been taught by the one who had been raised from the dead, Jesus Christ. That is also why Paul could write : “Since death is through a man [Adam], resurrection of the dead is also through a man{Jesus Christ}. For Just as in Adam all are dying, also in the Christ all will be made alive.”1 CORINTHIANS 15:21,22; What such hope!
    Sincerely Yours, Judy L.
