'90 minutes in Heaven' author to speak
NORTH LIMA - Speaker and New York Times best selling author, Don Piper, will visit the North Lima Mennonite Church at 7 p.m. Sept. 18. The community is invited.
According to the press release provided, "on his way home from a church conference in 1989, Piper's Ford Escort was struck head-on by an 18-wheeler. He was killed instantly - pronounced dead by four sets of paramedics. But God worked a miracle and sent him back to a broken body." To date, 34 surgical procedures have taken place. He walks only as a result of miraculous and in some cases medically unexplainable circumstances. During the time he was dead, Piper was granted the extreme privilege of glimpsing Heaven.
Since the release of his bestselling book, "90 Minutes in Heaven - A True Story of Death and Life," Piper has traveled across the country and around the world sharing his amazing story. A free-will offering will be taken. The church is located at 90 Mennonite Drive. For information call 330-549-2333.
