Dear Sister Vidya Sravanthi and

Dear Sister Vidya Sravanthi and Brother Joseph Vijayam,
While I was traveling yesterday I received the news of your father’s passing. I have such wonderful memories of Dr. Vijayam from the times I met him at the TENT training facility, on the tour of the Tabernacle he did for our leader’s years ago, and at your home, Sister Vidya. Your father’s life radiated the love of the Lord and his passion for reaching India with the Good News of Jesus in such a wonderful way.
I will always remember how he instructed us as a Missiologist on the demographic and religious composition of India – and the groups least-reached with the Gospel – with his “fat man” diagram. And as a Geologist and Biblical scholar he reminded us after the Tsunami of the reminders of the signs in the last days with “earthquakes in diver’s places.” (KJV)
We as a Global Disciples Board and staff team, we want to express our love, sympathy, and condolences to you and your family in this time of loss. Our prayers are with you as you gather with many friends, extended family members, church members, and associates to pay tribute to this wonderful man of God. And as you mourn the personal loss and praise God for the eternal reward of a life lived well for God’s glory, we will continue to lift you up in our prayers.
Sincerely in Christ,
Galen, Marie, and our Global Disciples Team
