Life After Life – Angola Day 16

July 16th, 2017 by Nicholas Comninellis

 

Life span in Angola averages only thirty-eight – a fact painfully experienced by our patients and families. We at CEML Hospital are diligent to help people better these odds. But all life has limits. As I pondered this truth, Pastor Moses phoned again, asking me to prepare a mediation for chapel today. Pictured above are patients and family members gathered outside their cabins, with the hospital in the background, singing in harmony with leaders from Moses’ church, below.

 

 

For my message of hope, I selected Philippians 3:20-21, “Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.” What a wonderful promise! Whether we succumb to malaria in Angola at age eight, or malignancy in American at age eighty, Christ – the only person in history to return from death to life – assures His followers of life after life.
