Joe was praying even at the moment of his death.

This is Joe Akiki, a young Christian hero, who lost his life in the Beirut explosion. Rescue workers recovered his dead body today from the rubble. They also found a cross in his hand.

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

1 Corinthians 2:9

1 Corinthians 15:42-44
