Alvera Conyers - Mar 4, 2014

We look forward to the time we will be united with our loved ones again. The Bible tell us at John 5:28-29 that this could be possible. It read as following: . (28) Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice (29) and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.
