1 Thessalonians 4 The Hope of the Resurrection 1 Thessalonians 4:13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. 1 Thessalonians 4:14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. 1 Thessalonians 4:15 We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:18 So encourage each other with these words.

I pray that God will comfort and strengthen your family following the loss of your dear mother. I distinctly recall how she was honored several years ago by Promises, Inc. for her outstanding community service. The OKC Community is certainly blessed to have been the recipient of Mrs. Carruthers's Godly, Christian service.

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal. May God give you everything that you need individually as his sons and daughters and collectively as a family to trust his wisdom and to accept his will; taking comfort in the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in John 11:25 (NIV): "Jesus said unto her, 'I am the resurrection and the life; the one who believes in me will live, even though they die' ".

To my dearest friend and Co-founder of the Cupcakes Clown Ministry, Mrs. Sheila Douglas, I submit these words of condolences. Be it known that Sis. Norma Carruthers was a servant of God, an orator of His word, an esteemed woman of noble character, and was affectionately known to the Cupcakes Clown Ministry as Mother Carruthers. She graciously served as a mentor, biblical advisor, and great supporter in our objective to reach a dark world in need of a Savior. In our unique and creative approach to share God’s word Mother Carruthers was readily available with a listening ear to ensure that we were well prepared to rightly divide the word of truth. She profoundly touched our ministry and enriched our lives tremendously. As you celebrate her life, may you and your family rest in the assurance that God will wipe your tears away and give you comfort as you walk this journey. Lovingly, Ollivett Brothers, Cupcakes Clown Ministry & Family
