Colton Burpo: saying heaven is for real

My name is Andrew Morlino as you all know and I being a proud Christian, am very inspired by Colton Burpo. The lesson that I always learn from Colton is that you can't enter the kingdom of God unless you become like an innocent child, like 3 year old Colton.

Early Life: Colton was born May 19, 1998. He had an older sister name Cassie. His main point of Colton's life happened in his early life. When he was 3 years old, he was hospitalized from appendicitis. It was during the surgery when everything happened. Jesus came to Colton and took his soul to heaven and back. During that short time, Colton met his great grandpa, still-born sister, and God himself.Colton saw his dad praying/screaming at God for Colton to live. Todd admitted his anger at God in the hospital. Where Colton sat in Jesus’s lap. Colton his parents about God’s throne and Jesus at his right side and Gabriel at his left. Lots of people ask colton what God’s complexion like. All the people Colton met had wings, but Jesus just floated. Colton said St. Michael had the biggest wings.  

Colton and his family still live in Imperial, Nebraska, but Colton is always going out to visit with terminally ill kids and their parents reassuring them of what will come. He tells us that he is not afraid of death. Colton's destiny wasn't chosen by him, it was chosen by God.
