C. Borurguet My deepest condolence August 3, 2017
My condolences, as feelings of pain and bitterness become unbearable. It is my desire to convey a comforting thought based on the Holy Scriptures
  John 5:28 "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."
This passage speaks of the resurrection of our loved ones. It is not God's plan to see us suffer and die, so He extends the following invitation to us: "Come near to God and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8)
Please go to the following link to obtain more information regarding the Hope expressed in this passage and again we are sorry for your loss.
Sonya Stuller Siento su gran perdida January 13, 2017
Cuando Jeus pierde a su gran amigo Lazaro en la muerte siente un gran dolor y pena,esto nos da animo y fuerza, nos enseña que tanto Dios Jehova y su amado hijo Jesucristo odian la muerte,Dios Jehova no creo la muerte,ademas tiene el poder necesario para combatir a este enemigo y derrotarlo.

Cuando Jesus resucita a Lazaro,debio ser muy bueno para se cierto,muchos lo abrazaron con mucha alegria,¡Sin duda estas y otros resurreccion fue una gran victoria sobre la muerte.

Por ejemplo en el evangelio de Juan capitulo 5 versiculo 28 y 29 muestra la que dice la esperanza de la resurreccion.
