It was heart-warming indeed to see the level of support for Mike Watson and Lisa Needoba as they went for surgery to Hong Kong (Penticton Western News, March 18, Local gets second shot at life).
For me the most important point in Mike’s interview was his observation “near death experiences can profoundly change your perspective on life.”
I pray they will indeed have their wish of being back in Kaleden early in April. At this time of year when we celebrate the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, may they ponder on their perspective on life and wonder if God has spared Mike’s life for a reason, that of entering into a living relationship with Himself.
Jesus died to break down the barrier between man and God, so that we might have eternal life rather than face judgment from a holy God.
