Zaida, your family is very sad and hurt at your departure but we are fully convinced that the Lord Jesus has taken your soul to be with him and that your name is written in the book of life. We also understand that you believed that Jesus came into the world for the purpose of dying on the cross and shed his blood for the remission of our sins. You accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and acknowledged his death and resurrection. Therefore, your soul was saved. The Bible quotes the following in John: 3- 16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. We are not telling you goodbye, we are simply telling you that we will see you again in the ports of Glory where the Lord abides when each one of us is called by Him in His due time and where we will all abide with our savior Jesus Christ forever and ever.
