Let not your heart be troubled, ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my father’s house are many mansions; if were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:1-2


His Arrival

His personality

William was a very humble person, who believed in helping whomever he could. He lived a simple and typical life. He did some bad. He had some good days, he had some hills to climb. He had some weary days and some sleepless nights, but in the end all of his good days outweighed his bad days. He did not complain and made preparation to leave this world a long time ago by accepting our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

His Departure

On August 13, 2018, the Lord whispered to His servant on early Monday morning, Come home and take your rest. God called his name Bet and he answered the call with joy. He won the victory!

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
