A Great Servant Leader

Dear Joseph,

How my heart goes out to you, to your dear mother Mary, and to the members of your family as well as the JVI/TENT ministry team in this time of bereavement. I cherish so many memories of walking the TENT campus with your father, interacting over meals, and benefiting from his deep biblical wisdom as well as strategic insight. India has lost a great servant leader, a man who integrated workplace and ministry for the glory of Christ and the advance of Christ’s kingdom. But heaven has gained a fervent worshiper.

May the Lord surround you with his comfort and bear you up in his strength. Be assured of our prayers for you during tomorrow’s service, and during these days of transition. “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (Deuteronomy 33:27).

In Christ’s love,
David W. Bennett
