The Burpo’s And His Experience
The community in their town was not able to accept the story of how Colton was able to go to heaven and come back and placed pressure onto Pastor Todd.
Though a man of God, Todd too had difficulty believing his son’s experience until the reality of his son’s story hit him and his wife who was shocked that Colton knew and spoke about the sister he had never met or knew about before his near death experience.
His story also brought light to the indigo kid who was artistic and drew Jesus, whom Colton recognized as the Jesus he met during his heaven experience.
