"In Heaven"..........

Amy Stockstill made her "entrance" into heaven last night.

This is as follows from her husband Joel's blog......
"With both sadness and joy I regret to inform all of you that tonight February 11 at 9:40 pm my lovely wife Amy went to be with Jesus. This is a mighty victory and the half will never be known. With great love and appreciation to all who have joined with us."


Please continue to pray for both of their two families and their church.

Although this isn't my church....I stand with them as do many of the people in our city and across the nation, and in fact.....world wide. Because the church they are at has had an impact on the entire world for years.

I had written a previous post on Feb. 8th about this situation.

Joel and Amy Stockstill are Youth Pastors at the "Bethany World Prayer Center."
They hadn't been married very long when she became ill.

Joel himself has been ill for many years......he's been on a "DOUBLE Kidney transplant wait list"since he was in his teens.

I've often wondered "why" they have had to endure so much in their short lifetimes.

These kids have had and shown some amazing courage and fortitude.
I appreciate them.

What a sad day for that family. She was so young and had such a life ahead of her. I know her family and church will miss her so. My prayers are with them. Susie

Oh no. I am just overwhelmed with sadness right now. I was so rooting for her! I wanted her to win this fight, and had the vision in my mind that she would prevail over this - Jesus said He needed her more. May her husband and family and friends find some kind of comfort in knowing she is now perfect - she knows all the answers to every question ever asked, she is in no pain, and she has eternal life with her Father. She will be an Angel forever in Heaven, as I am sure she was on Earth. I am deeply saddened by this news, as I was so touched by the post that showed such support for her. God be with you all - xo Sher

Yet he rejoices that she is with Christ. I'm going over to his blog now. Blessings... Polly

Well.... I am quite shocked. (tears) I didn't even know her, but I prayed that God would heal her. God's ways and His will are mysterious. It must be so devastating for her husband.

My goodness. This is so sad. There is so much suffering and sadness in this world. I'm so thankful we have a better life to look forward to.
Thanks for the nice comments you made on my blog. Yes, blogging can be addictive.
I'm sorry you broke your tooth skating, and at such an early age.
Hugs and blessings to you today.
