Dr.Haggai’s passing away is a big blow to the globe. He was a man with a mission and had the skill to network at high places with politicians all around the world. I admire him for being so radical about thinking that Gospel needs to be given by indigenous people to their own community. I had the pleasure to meet him in person in 2009 and spend few minutes with him when I had gone to his institute for SLS seminar. He was old but even at that age he was very energetic and sharp in thinking. Those few days I stayed and learned in Maui were life Changing and I want to thank Dr.Haggai for creating such an institution and opportunity for me to meet many colleagues who were leaders around the world.
Dr. Haggai was a missionary and he wanted to make the institute self reliant and had discussions with me on how to ensure continuous funding for the survival of the institute instead of depending on few donors who regularly provided for each of these courses.
Dr, Haggai was a man with a mission and he ran the race well. I will cherish all my life the conversation I had with Dr. Haggai.
I hope that I too can run the race as well as Dr.Haggai so that I can meet him with Jesus Christ once my days are over in this world.
He has been a great blessing for Indian leaders who have been trained at his institute and are doing a great Job in India.
I want to thank our Lord Jesus for the Life of Dr.Haggai🙏
