[Colton Burpo – Boy Says He Visited Heaven and Saw Jesus]

[Matthew “Matt” Todd Lauer (born December 30, 1957)]
What’s your idea of heaven? A little boy from Nebraska thinks he has a pretty good idea because he said he’s been there. We’ll talk to him in a moment. But first, his story.

[Matt Lauer]
Some people have called this God’s country. with crimson sunrises and rolling farmlands. Imperial, Nebraska, population 1,982, is the heartland. It’s also where the Burpo, Todd, the local pastor, his wife Sonja and their three kids live. Normal in all respects it except one.

A few angels came to pick me up and I was looking at Jesus.

[Matt Lauer]
That’s right. Their 11-year-old Colton has been to Heaven.

[Sonja Burpo – Mom]
Then he says the thing that gets their attention. That’s when the angels sang to me, mom. It’s like wow. Angels wow.

[Matt Lauer]
It all started when colton was 4 with a near tragedy.

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
We really hit a real low because we really blown it.

What they thought was the flu turned out to be a burst appendix.

[Sonja Burpo – Mom]
We think it __ burst for five days so for a little kid to have all the poison in him for that long, ya

[Matt Lauer]
At the hospital they were given little hope

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
I remember the doctor just not saying anything. You know that – that – that was a nightmare.

[Matt Lauer] Source: LYBIO.net
After 17 days in the hospital Colton emerged but he was different. He began speaking about things he couldn’t possibly know about. His mother’s miscarriage. his father’s prayers and a visit with his great-grandfather pop.

[Colton Burpo]
I was just sitting by the Holy Spirit. Then this guy comes up to me and says, are you Todd ‘s son? I said, yes. He said, well, I’m his grand-father.

[Matt Lauer]
It all led to this book “Heaven is For Real.” Todd, Sonja and Colton Burpo are with us now, Good Morning, to all of you. Nice to see you.

[Todd, Sonja and Colton Burpo]
God Morning.

[Matt Lauer] Source: LYBIO.net
Colton, I will talk to you in a second, I will talk to you first Todd and get this right out of the way, people are going to say, this is a Pastor

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Yes

[Matt Lauer]
This is a believer a man of the cloth, he wants desperately to believe this and he wants others to believe it, and that’s why this story is out there. How do you respond to people like that?

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Well at first, we were surprised. We doubted ourselves. We never anticipated to talk to our son about these things. And what caught my attention, what grabbed mine – he could tell me where I was while he was in surgery. The surgeon couldn’t tell me that, the nurses in there couldn’t, my wife couldn’t tell me where I was praying. But he could tell me.

[Matt Lauer] Source: LYBIO.net
And you asked how he knew that and he said cause I could see you, I was sitting – I think he believe he even said: “I was sitting in Jesus’ lap”.

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Yes

[Matt Lauer]
As you were doing all these things. So you were cynical, both of you a little bit at first, until you started to hear these things.

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Exactly.

[Matt Lauer]
Some of the other things he said, okay. I’m sitting in Jesus’ lap”. “Everyone in heaven has wings”. “Mine were a little smaller than most people’s”. “Nobody is old in heaven”.

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
I like that part.

[Matt Lauer]
Yah, I think a lot of people like that. What? I mean, did you start to share these stories with other people and did anyone look at you and say: “You folks are crazy?” You just have been through a traumatic experience. Sonja?

[Sonja Burpo – Mom]
Ah, we didn’t share at first. And then once we started sharing, people were amazed and – and they were encouraged by what we were sharing with them.

[Matt Lauer]
Colton , today you’re 11. This all happened when you were 4. How vivid are your memories today? Can you close your eyes and remember exactly what you think heaven looked like? Exactly what jesus looked like? all those things?

[Colton Burpo]
Well, I remember most of it. But since time has come by, you forget.

[Matt Lauer]
Now, when you say nobody in heaven is old, they all – you saw nobody like in their 60s, 70s, 80s up there?

[Colton Burpo] Source: LYBIO.net
No. Saw them in their 20s, 30s at oldest.

[Matt Lauer]
I – I think a question a lot of people would like to ask you Colton is: What did heaven itself look like? I mean is it the way I talk about it to my kids? Above the clouds? Is everybody floating? What’s it like?

[Colton Burpo]
Well, there was a – alot of colors. There are a lot of people. And a lot of animals.

[Matt Lauer]
You know, I think the story that’s going to get people’s attention, Sonja and Todd, is the story he told that he met the child that you had miscarried. That was a couple years earlier. Have you ever told him about that incident?

[Sonja Burpo – Mom]
Huh Huh

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Not at all. Not at all.

[Sonja Burpo – Mom]
How would you explain it to a 3-year-old that a baby died in your tummy? So, no. We – and it was – it was, I was pri, I think were weren’t still even talking about it, it was a private hurt, that we didn’t share with our friends or less our family.

[Matt Lauer]
Can you describe the moment he said that to you?

[Sonja Burpo – Mom]
Ah, shock-ing, but then a relief that she’s okay. Which we didn’t know she’s a she.

[Matt Lauer]
Tell me about Pop, Colton tell me about Pop.

[Colton Burpo]
Well, Pop, he was very big, huge wings. He had curly hair, big smile and he was really nice.

[Matt Lauer] Source: LYBIO.net
You know ah, this, what’s amazing is this has become a “New York Times” bestseller for Non-Fiction. I guess the simple explanation is a lot of people out there who want to believe or at least want to question.

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Ya

[Matt Lauer]
Is that the way you you look at it?

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Well, I think for us, like when he told us about his sister in heaven that we hadn’t told him about. Another one of those holly cow moments, that okay. Okay, he can’t make this up, he can’t invent this. No memory was planted, but the peace that came other us and the healing, you know, just the wow, I have a daughter waiting for me. I think a lot of people need that type of hope and healing, too. And I think that’s what a lot of people are finding when they hear Colton’s testimony.

[Matt Lauer]
So that’s what you want people to take away tell from this – is a sense of peace perhaps?

[Todd Burpo – Dad]
Hope, healing. Ah, they know what they have to look forward to.

[Matt Lauer]
Todd, Colton, Sonja, Thank you all very much.
