Alive in Heaven! – A Child Died a Father Cried and God Answered.
A real life story of tragedy, hope and healing.
At 2:30 a.m. on July 12, 2005, Mark Canfora received a call from his sixteen-year-old daughter: “Daddy, Marky’s dead.” His eighteen-year-old son had passed away. As a result of this tragedy, Mark would never be the same.
This heartbroken father tells his story with honesty and vulnerability, sharing his journey from grief-stricken thoughts of his own suicide to God-fueled courage and a ministry that now offers comfort and hope to thousands. Mark Canfora writes, “Acting on my faith in God and my love for Him, I hope and pray that this book will help and encourage others who suffer the shocking loss and excruciatingly painful tragedy of the death of a loved one, especially the death of a child.”
“Mark Canfora has found the loving power of God in the deepest valley of his life! A true story of how much God loves us!”
“There is such a need for this ministry of hope and healing. Mark has suffered loss in his son Mark Jr., and instead of being angry or having the grief to turn him away from the Lord, he has turned that loss into something good.”
“Mark Canfora has an inspiring, tremendous & powerful story of hope and healing. Many have come to Jesus Christ through his tragedy.”
