“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
Dear church family and friends, Helen’s dad entered the church triumphant on Tuesday evening.
Helen is already in Los Angeles with her family. There is currently a backlog of around three weeks at the funeral homes in Los Angeles. Once we can find a date to celebrate the life of Sun Young Park, kids and I will be joining Helen in Los Angeles.
Helen’s dad is currently in the presence of Jesus. He is no longer struggling with Covid. He is no longer struggling to breathe. Helen’s dad is more fully alive at this moment than we have ever known or experienced.
Helen’s dad loved Jesus and we know Jesus loves him. He had no doubts about what would happen to him should Jesus call him home.
Because of Jesus, because of the life God offers in Jesus Christ, this is not the end of the story for Helen’s dad. We know we will be together again.
We thank God for the promise of the resurrection. We thank God that death does not get the last word. We are sad and will miss Helen’s dad’s presence but we have a peace that surpasses human understanding.
Thank you for your prayers and your care.
God is good.
