I woke this morning to the news that George Verwer has gone home to be with the Lord he loved and served so well in the times of his sojourn. 84 years God gave him, and you can count me among the ones he had a transformative influence. I never met him. I never heard him speak live and rarely through recording, but O how thankful I am that he wrote books and articles. Those I have read were always encouraging, challenging, insightful, honest, unafraid and bold. They were saturated with a passion for both his LORD and for those He came to save. We will miss him.
Who will rise to fill his shoes? I hope you are praying for that.
Here is a link to a brief retrospective on the life of George Verwer by one of the men he mentored.
