In Sydney we have this Christian radio station (Hope 103.2).www.hope103.com.au
On one of their programs (Open House) they discussed 'near death experiences' with some doctors and nurses talking about their experiences of dealing with patients. One nurse rang in and told this wonderful story which I think for me is all the proof one needs - if you need evidence. Although I have been brought up in a Christian family and myself believe in God I found my heart was jumping at this story. She told of being a trainee nurse and one of the patients in the hospital was an old male patient (in his 80's). She use to make a point of speaking to him every time she was on duty. One day she decided that she needed to know if he believed in God and so she asked. He said, 'Jesus is my friend'. She said she felt relieved that he knew God. A while went by, and she continued to visit him and have chats and one day she decided to come in early and spend some time chatting to him before her shift started. She was talking to him (standing at the left side of the bed), however he was looking at the right side of the bed. He then said to her, Jesus is here in the room, he has his arms open and wants me to come home. At that point he died. She spoke about wanting to take her shoes off as it was like being on hallowed ground, however knew that she needed to report his death. What a wonderful story this is.
