Destination Final - A Parallel World

Updated on September 18, 2012

Introduction to the Destination Final Series

Is there life after death? The answer to this question has eluded mankind ever since the beginning of time. But for Francine Morgan that question was clarified in a series of the most bizarre of incidents that would forever be embedded in her life. Francine was a medical student at Xavier University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Francine has dreamed of becoming a nurse since she was nine years old. She loves people and has always had a sincere aspiration to help needy people attain to a better lifestyle, and she thought nursing would afford the perfect opportunity to help people in need.

Francine had an average childhood—at least what most people would call average—loving parents that provided her with a secure lifestyle along with the essential tools to get ahead in life. Her father, James Morgan, was a tranquil man who had sound spiritual convictions. A hard working man, James was an excellent provider for his family and he believed the word of God right down to the core of his spirit. James took every word of the Bible quite literally as the spoken word of God. He was also an active deacon in the church he attended.

Francine’s mother, Barbara, loved church and saw to it that Francine and her younger brother Jason attended church every Sunday. She and James taught Francine the principles of having a good relationship with God. They had always insisted that both she and Jason would restrict themselves from the evils of a society that they thought was fast becoming an enemy of God, and they were strictly against cigarette smoking and alcohol use.

Francine had left her quiet home in Lafayette, Louisiana to live on Xavier University’s New Orleans campus and she was not accustomed to big city life, and in New Orleans she would have to deal with an environment with which she had no experience—things like partying, nightclubbing and crime.

One weekend Francine was invited out on a casual Saturday night outing by her dormitory roommate, and for the first time in her life she entered a Daiquiri Shop where she met Jackie Charles, a local drug dealer. Francine was mesmerized by his charm and not knowing that JC was a crack-cocaine dealer she agreed to go on a dinner date with him the following day that led to a near fatal accident. As a result of substantial injuries she sustained from a robbery attempt while on her date with JC, Francine was taken to the emergency room at University Hospital in New Orleans with a fractured skull.

After Francine’s vital signs were stabilized, she was taken to surgery in an attempt to relieve the pressure to the frontal lobe of her brain. Francine was placed inside an MRI Scanner and while undergoing the MRI scan Francine died, but the dedicated team of medical professionals at the hospital would not give up on reviving her. They labored feverishly to bring Francine back and their efforts paid off. She was alive but she would remain in a comma.

At the precise moment that Francine died she experienced an out of body, out of this world incidence that bolted her through time and space to an astonishing three hundred thirty-six trillion light years from Earth to the center of the universe. She was accompanied by a bizarre but magnificent crystal-looking being who called himself Zoë.

While deep in a comma, Francine experienced sights that no other human had ever experienced as her celestial guide took her on an extraordinary tour of Heaven and Hell. Unable to ignore memories of the scenes she had seen, Francine’s remarkable and breathtaking experience in Hell and her incredible experience of Heaven would become the focal points of her ministry when she regains consciousness.

For Francine the answer to one of life’s most mysterious questions is still a mystery. But the reality of an out of body experience was evidence enough for her to conclude that life is the one thing that never ends.
