A Radio Message September 1947
By Dr. Jesse M. Hendley
October 11, 1907---November 30, 1994
I received a letter from a mother and I will read it
to you now.
"We had the prettiest, sweetest little baby for over
three months, three months and five days to be exact,
and it died. Brother Hendley, I loved my baby, it was
so little and so sweet. It was a blue baby. The
doctors said it would always be sick all its life.
Some nights it didn't sleep any at all. Everybody who

I will, if I possibly can. I know you have studied the
Word of God, so will you tell me what chapters and
verses and books to find out what I want to know and
please explain it to me? I do want to see my baby
again if it is God's will. Please help explain it to
-A Daily Listener.
