Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Forever

Dr. Les Thompson and his family have been  dear lifetime  friends of our family. He and his family have ministered to Latin American pastors through LOGOI  over the past sixty years. Recently he left this world to meet His Saviour and Friend in Heaven.  Ed, his youngest son, and Director of LOGOI, describes the final moments of his life.

                         ***************************************

It is with great joy to announce Dr. Les Thompson is alive and well—more alive today, in fact, than he has ever been. On August 30th, 2011 at 3:30 in the afternoon, everything was ready and Jesus came and got him just as He promised in John chapter 14. Dad is right where he has longed to be for so long; he is with his Lord and Savior. For us, the tears flow easily as our hearts are full of wonderful memories of a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend. But make no mistake, we are thrilled for Dad; he is finally home!

The last word Dad spoke was the word, “forever.” He seemed to be fading and Mom was tenderly reciting Psalm 23 with him, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I have all that I need.” Dad wasn’t able to speak, but he mouthed the words. The last phrase of this wonderful Psalm of David says, “and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” As Mom said those words, Dad took a deep breath, opened his eyes, and in his strong, normal voice, said aloud, “Forever!” It was the last word he would speak in this world.

…forever,
