Our much beloved brother and friend, Paul Burnett, went to be with Jesus on Monday, Oct. 19, 2020. He was at home with his wife and kids when he passed from this life and ran, fully healed, into his eternal life with the Lord.

On behalf of the Burnett Family, please join us in praying and supporting Paul’s wife, Erica, and their three children. So many have been blessed by this incredible family, and we ask that you would cover and support them in any way the Lord leads.

His family would like to invite friends of Paul to attend his Memorial this Saturday.

  • How to Support the Burnett Family: Friends of the Burnett family have set up a Go Fund Me Page to help the Burnett family with medical and funeral expenses.

If you would like to leave an anonymous gift that doesn’t flow through Believers Church, you can leave your gift with a note at Believers Church and we will make sure it gets to the Burnett Family. In addition, if you would like to send the Burnett family memories or encouragements, you can do so by emailing encouragetheburnetts@gmail.com.

This year, Paul’s health quickly declined due to liver disease. After time in ICU this month, Paul and his family decided it best for him to spend his remaining time at home. The day after Paul’s passing, Erica shared this powerful verse and encouragement with friends and family:

“And regarding the question, friends, that has come up about what happens to those already dead and buried, we don’t want you in the dark any longer. First off, you must not carry on over them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus.” (‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:13-14‬ ‭MSG‬‬)

Last night Paul went to be with Jesus face to face. The kids and I were right by his side as he left the tent of his earthly body. The boundary between heaven and earth was so thin, and God’s presence so near.
So thankful that he is now free and that the grave is not the last word.
