    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. ~~~You are also cordially invited to the memorial of Jesus death. The means by which the promise of a paradise is possible. Saturday March 31st, 2018 at 7:15 pm. Location : Havert l fenn center, 2000 Virginia Avenue, Fort Pierce, 34982
