Last Day

La’Terra was the first child to arrive at the Louisiana One Day with God camp. She was dressed from head to toe in the camp colors. She anxiously waited for registration to begin. Volunteers could not help but notice her excitement mounting. No one could have known what a special day this would be for her and her father.

La’Terra and her dad were inseparable all day. When it came time to leave, she ran back to give her father one last hug three times. She had a hard time letting go of him.

Two weeks later, Forgiven Ministry received a call from Rayburn Correctional that La’Terra had been killed while riding her bicycle. Her inmate father spoke at her funeral in shackles. He said, tearfully,

“I thank God for the day I spent with my daughter; and if you see her again, you will have to go to heaven.”

Louisiana volunteers attended the service and wore their One Day with God tee shirts. La’Terra got to spend one day with God and her earthly father; but now she is spending every day with her Heavenly Father.
