Pastor C Jackson-TWP Orlando FL - Sep 29, 2020
Minister Kelli Adams, On behalf of the Jackson and Smith family we want to say we love you greatly. We were so glad to see your mom Idella on our last visit to you. We remember our time of laughter and love. We do know that our God will take care of you at this time especially when you go to the "Mercy Seat". Please take heart with the word of our Lord in 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Take comfort in that you will see your mother Sister Idella Adams again. If you should need anything from your extended family in us please let us know. We are praying for you and we do love you.

Minister Kelli Adams, We the entire body of The Wealthy Place across this nation offer our prayers and condolences with the transitioning of your mother Sister Idella Adams. We know according to the Word of our Lord in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 (NIV) Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. With this in mind take comfort that you will see her again. Our prayers are with you. We love you Minister Kelli Adams TWP
