Change of Address for
Vivian Marie Foster
October 12, 1926 to April 24, 2020

Please be advised that I have moved. I received a call the other day from God and he informed me that my new home was completed.  I knew that my mansion needed some finishing touches and that The Father had to inspect it and give me the final approval.

On Friday, April 24, 2020 He let me know that my mansion was finally completed and I could move in right away.

He told me to go ahead and change my address. Let me tell you that my new home is finished and what a sight to behold. It is located on an exclusive estate area behind the pearly gates and surrounded by a beautiful lake, it's beautiful. I couldn't believe it until this moment that now I am happily living down the street from my mama and father. It is truly an honor to be back together again with them, for I have missed them more than words can ever express. Oh, Father what a heavenly and joyous day this truly is. As you know the roads are paved with gold and every day is Sunday, just like you have been told. The trees of fruit grace my garden here and I can walk and talk with my Master without any worries or cares.

Please My Dear Loved Ones there is no need to cry or be sadden any longer, for I want you to celebrate my home-going because for me there is now true peace, happiness and joy here, and of course, there is no more pain or heartache, no strife or discontent, only sweet don't have to worry about me anymore for I am together again with my other family; just like The Father had planned.

We are all sitting at the Master's bountiful table and listening to a Heavenly choir, which contains some heavy hitters, and of course we’re is singing too, we are jamming and having a good time. And best of all, my Heavenly Father is here in all His glory.

I also have my own designer who has fitted me with my own white robe and my own wings. I could go on and on about my new home but instead I am going to pray that you will get to move here yourself one day.
