John 14: 1-3
“Do not let your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in me.
My father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, what I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
