My Friend Vena

Vena Poole was totally British even though she became a Canadian citizen years ago. I wonder how she is taking to her new citizenship in heaven. I hope they serve high tea there.

At one time, Vena and her husband Ronald ran The Lillian, a ship on the west coast of Canada. They sailed the coast carrying supplies and the Good News of Jesus wherever they landed.

Vena was able to ring the cancer unit bell denoting the last of her chemotherapy. There everyone celebrates with you by applauding and cheering and wishing you well. Vena had little experience with such adulation. So she waved and saluted her audience exactly as Queen Elizabeth would have done. It was indeed a regal moment.

You will find these stories in her books and on several websites. Vena wrote and published four quite successful books and was working on another one about a family in wartime Britain.

Vena would want you to know and pray this truth.

Jesus is the Son of God. He died on the cross just for you, just for me, to pay the price for your sin and mine. He was raised from the dead, just for you, just for me.

He is the mighty Son of God with the Holy nature of God Himself. (Rom 1:2-4, TLB)

Prayer- Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross to pay the price for my sin.
I believe that you rose from the dead and that you’re alive right now. Please come into my life. Forgive my sin. Make me a member of your family. I now turn from going my own way. I want you to be the center of my life.

Thank you for your gift of eternal life and for your Holy Spirit who has come to live in me. Amen

Now–if you’ve prayed that prayer for the very first time, you’ll want to tell somebody. Vena would be most delighted to meet you in heaven and possibly serve you a British high tea.
