24-Nov-1949 – 25-Nov-2019

The beloved husband to Amy, father to Savinitrie and Narine, brother to Dorothy and Beodat (Buddy), cousin to Samuel, uncle to Sushma, brother-in-Christ to many, and trusted friend to many more, Dhanpaul Dasrat, was born November 24, 1949, and returned to the Lord on November 25, 2019.

 
 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (ESV) The Coming of the Lord

 13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Good News, There Is Still Time!

Did you make plans today and decided to skip church because you did not have time to do both?

The Good News is having changed clocks back an hour, you have time for both! 

Or at least take time for the Lord and use that extra hour to have a second cup of coffee or tea, pick up your Bible and spend an hour with Him. Have a Blessed Sunday!
