Well he didn’t speak with a Aussie accent that’s for sure.
Now that couldn’t be heaven, if everyone didn’t speak with an Aussie accent, could it? Let’s be reasonable here.
That said, did you think I was joking? LOL.
Pastors kid describes seeing heaven in near-death experience

A 12-year-old Nebraska boy appeared on the Today show to talk about the vivid details of his visit to heaven amid treatment for a life-threatening medical condition several years before.
Colton Burpos storycomplete with sitting on Jesus lap, hearing angles sing, talking to late family members and moreis the subject of the book Heaven is for Real, which has spent almost a year on the New York Times best sellers list.
It was written by his father, the Rev. Todd Burpo, pastor of an evangelical church in the Wesleyan tradition, based on the account Colton told after being treated for a ruptured appendix at age 4.
Despite the skeptics or the cynics who say the Burpos are trying to market their sons visions for money, Coltons parents believe his tales from heaven to be true and believe that God gave him that experience to bless the lives of others.
We questioned our son at first, Todd Burpo said on the Today show Tuesday. But as parents, everyone can tell when their 4-year-old is telling the truth. Theyre telling you things that they cant really make up. We also see all the people that are finding peace and hope and comfort from Coltons story, so for those people it might be a gift.
Colton recognized his great-grandfather and miscarried baby sister, both of whom he didnt know about, among the angels in heaven, his parents said.
In previous interviews, the boy described God as a very big man and Jesus as having a rough but kind face, sea-blue eyes and a smile that lit up the heavens.
