One Condolence for Dorothy E. Jensen

  • My prayers go out to the family at this difficult time. Our loving God has promised to do away with sickness, suffering, and death here on the earth in the near future. (Psalms 37:9-11; Isaiah 33:24; John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:3-5) God understands what you are feeling and promises to be “close to the brokenhearted” and “saves those crushed in spirit”. (Psalms 34:18) Please know that your family will be in my prayers!
