Colton Burpo was in a dire condition. After a doctor misdiagnosed a ruptured appendix, Colton had to undergo emergency surgery. It was during that time that young Colton said he visited Heaven, and even met a sister his parents never told him he had:
While in heaven, Colton says he saw many things and met many people, including Pop, his great-grandfather, who died 30 years before Colton was born.
But Colton says he didn't look like the photo in his house. A picture sent months later by his grandmother was more like the man he met, a young man without glasses.
The most surprising part of Colton's story was when Colton confessed to his mother that he had more than one sister. But he only has one sister. His parents never told him about the miscarriage.
Colton says, "She looked familiar and she started giving me hugs and told me she was glad to have someone from her family up there."
Over time, the young man's visions became more real, from his description of Jesus, to his talks with God, even a discussion about Armageddon.
The Burpo family has accepted and embraced their little boy's unbelievable story. They put the words on pages and prayed for guidance.
