To our dearly beloved Pena Family of Christ Jesus, our prayer is that you continue to keep your loving father's living legacy brightly burning and alive with the love that he has so graciously poured out to you all like a beautiful sweet smelling fragrant sacrifice. Brother Jose has preserved the Flame of Papa Father God's Love by forging in you all, family and friends; the very Image, Likness and Heart-beat of King Christ Jesus. Also, I thank Abba Father God for comforting you all and bringing you His Hope and Peace. The LORD Has Heard My Voice…14 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all His people. 15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints. 16 Truly, O LORD, I am Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant; You have released my bonds....- Psalm 116:14-16 Brother Pena is in good Hands of God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and in a Great Cloud of Witnesses as today is Dr. & Rev. Billy Graham's 1 Year Anniversary of being ushered into the Most Holy Presence of Father God's Throne Room and into his eternal resting place in Heaven, Jesus' Great House of Love, His Mansion were Jesus Himself said to Papas Graham and Pena “His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25:23
