November 2017 Newsletter

This Month's Featured Writer

Nedia Keel

Hello and happy November to all of our readers! My name is Nedia Keel and I am first and foremost a Christian. I am a friend to Bob Olynyk, the owner of this website. Bob asked me to write the November newsletter, and I was so happy to do so! Bob has done a wonderful job and I know he is God-driven in his endeavors! Thank you Bob!

I pondered, but did not have to ponder long about what I would like to write about for the newsletter. You see, this November will mark a year that my mother passed on to paradise to be with the Lord. So I decided to write about my journey and my mother's journey through the abyss of cancer at her age of 72. The last year of her life, after deciding that the chemo wasn't making her feel any better and was only decreasing her quality of life, she had little pain and lots of love and memories.

Nedia and her mom Linda Brewer (May 2015)

Three days before my mother passed, she sat on the edge of her bed with me and she said "I am so blessed". She was blessed and we were so blessed to have her Godly influence in our life. On the day she died, Nov. 11th, 2016, Veteran's Day in the U.S., I remember her sleeping sound. She never awoke on her last day at home in her bed with her family throughout the house. I remember the stacks of cards sent from her Christian brothers and sisters in the Lord that she never got to read or even open. I decided to read every one of them to her before she went to see the Lord. She was waiting on the Lord as I sat next to her bed and read about 50 cards to her. "Linda, we love you!", "I know what you are going through because I went through this trial." "God loves you, he watches over us no matter what." So many different people letting my mom know of their love. All the wonderful and comforting words & scriptures that I know she heard from the cards I read. I wanted to make sure she heard every card before she passed. My mother loved her cards. She loved encouraging others and she loved being encouraged. My mother never woke that last day at her family home. When she did awake it was in Paradise, a place that she lived her whole life to see. She was color blind here on Earth but now she sees every color!

What did I learn from my heart ache? What comforted me all this year without her here? SO MUCH! So many people, so many scriptures from the Lord helped me through the journey I have been through this year. My journey has been littered with questions and doubt about God's promises, but any and every time I had any doubt creep into my mind that I would never see my mother again, it was shot down by memories of my belief & childhood upbringing in the Lord and in his promises such as I John 5:13 & 14 and John 14 vs. 2, and of course one of my favorite bible verses John 8:12 "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life." So faith of my parents is something I have had this entire year to comfort me. Memories of my mom's love for God and her faith & my father's continued faith has kept me pleading to God & clinging to God and his promises.Nedia and her mom Linda Brewer

My mother was a teacher of the bible. She graded papers through World Bible School bible study lessons for 25 + years. There are so many countless people she has brought to the Lord. I wanted to pick up where she left off. So I started working with World Bible School at my church. I took on about 40 students. Five have become children of God through learning about Jesus and putting him on in baptism. Some people think that being submersed in water is an outward showing of one's faith. The bible teaches that when you accept & confess Jesus as the Son of God that you can then be born into an everlasting life by putting Jesus on in baptism.

Here are the scriptures concerning the salvation for us through baptism: John 3:16. Read the entire chapter of Romans 6. Colossians 2 vs. 12. I Peter 3 vs. 20-23. Dwell in the Lord's word and that will lead you to his work. It will give you peace and bring you comfort. My full happiness in the Lord was manifested in the five baptisms that happened from my W.B.S. students and prayerfully there will be many more baptisms. What a legacy my mother left me and what a privilege to continue her work. The Lord has blessed me abundantly. I know his hand was on this work. Prayerfully, the ones you love that pass away will be in the Father's hand and he will wipe away all tears. My family was given a beautiful and loving mother who cherished the word of God and who did all she could in her life for her family and she introduced my sister and I and so many people to a man named Jesus and led us to his salvation. She kept us on the straight and narrow paths for the Lord.

I am very blessed to have the hope of seeing my mother again. My heart knows that people who have a parent that are not saved will not worry or cry tears if they become saved unlike their parents. The Lord promises to comfort you also and to fill your voids with lots of mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters in Heaven when you accept Jesus and his salvation.

God is good all the time and all the time God is good. He will comfort you. In this month of November when so many have a Thanksgiving feast and express their thankfulness to God may we all bless others as Jesus has blessed us through each year. I am so thankful to God for giving me my mother Linda Brewer and helping me through this very hard journey that my family has had to endure without her this past year.

Sincerely in Jesus,

Nedia Keel
