A Dying Woman's Important Message

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die..." (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, English Standard Version).

I listened to a powerful presentation by Rachel Barkey today at http://deathisnotdying.com/death-is-not-dying-event-audio. (The video is also available on a link at the site.) Mrs. Barkey is a 37-year old woman who is dying of liver and bone cancer. She gave the speech recently at a women's conference at her local church in British Columbia, Canada. In her message, she talked about what she has learned about God, herself, the gospel of Christ, and the purpose of her life as she has dealt with cancer over the last 5 years. Her message is worth hearing. Please take the time to listen.

What an awesome message of God's love and faithfulness even when life isn't going your way and you can't make any sense of what is going on.
