Life Summary


Jesus said, “Don’t be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me.  There are many rooms in my Father’s house.  I would not tell you this if it were not true. I am going there to prepare a place for you.  After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back. Then I will take you with me, so that you can be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going.”
