Pamela woke in the middle of Tuesday night and prayed for Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran ,that they would be saved, that their families would be comforted. She prayed that they would be brave in the face of death.
Christ’s promise in John 14:1-4 is a message of hope for all who trust in Jesus Christ!
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you! And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going."
