Heaven can seem really far away, but for one little boy Heaven is very real.
Four months after Colton Burpo from Nebraska nearly died in 2003 and survived a dangerous burst appendix, his parents started to suspect something astonishing had happened to him.
Their son was changed after the operation, but they understood the truth after a while. After the operation, Colton told his dad that he nearly died. He didn’t pay much attention to his son’s words, until four months after they left the hospital.
Colton says he went into Heaven where Jesus and angels came and flew him up to Heaven. He says that Jesus was wearing white robes with a purple sash. Also, he told his father that Jesus had markers on the top of his feet and on the palms of his hands.
First, Colton says that he went in the Throne room of God where he was upset because he didn’t know what was happening. He says that God used people and things he liked to calm him down.
Colton said he had been hugged by his great-grandfather in Heaven. His father’s grandfather had died 30 years before Colton was born. Also, he talked about his other sister he met in Heaven. He didn’t know that his mother once miscarried- a girl.
Colton says he didn’t want to leave Heaven, but he had to because Jesus was answering to his father’s prayer.
Colton says Heaven is for real and you are going to love it.
