Mr. Ryan White c/o: People Magazine Time & Life Bldg. Rockefeller Center New York, NY 10020
Dear Ryan and Family:
After having read of your situation in the August 3 "People Magazine", I was moved to write this letter to you for the purpose of directing your attention to some information that will provide encouragement to you in this time of need.
"AiDS" is a devastating disease but the Bible speaks of a time where all the earth's inhabitants will be of strong mind and body. I mention the Bible, because in the article that I read, it mentioned how your and your mother say your prayers at night. This is a worthwhile thing to do.
In fact, in your personal copy of the Bible note how the last inspired book describes what will soon happen for earth's inhabitants: "...He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nore outcry nor pain be anymore...Write because these words are faithful and true." (Revelation 21 chapter, verses 3-5.) This is truly a comforting situation to pray for is it not?
In the accompanying Awake Magazine, the feature articles address the quiestion "Health for All Mankind --- When?" Oftentimes, as is discussed within, medical emergencies arise due to human error or a non-healthful course of life.
But...who will remedy the situation for good?
On page 8, the article entitled "Permanent Healing Near" directs us to the Source who not only can but will abolish the cause and effects of these deadly epidemics. His son, Jesus Christ, demonstrated on a small scale what will soon happen worldwide. Please read the scriptural accounts cited in the articles - using your own Bible.
The one accomplishing this feat is none other thatn "Jehovah - the most high God." (Psalm 83 verse 18)
Yes, true health is possible. There is so much more to be said that cannot be contained in this letter. Please feel free to contact the local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses and they will help you learn more from your Bible about the positive hope for the future when "no resident will say: I am sick." (Isaiah chapter 33 verse 24). Or, please write back.
Sincerely, K. [Redacted] [Redacted] [Redacted]
(I thank the editors again for forwarding this letter.)
