Good night God’s Genera. A man who lived and lived. A man who is blessed and was a blessing to others. A man who was impacted by God and impacted his generation. A man who experienced the love o God and express the love of God to many leaders worldwide. A man who had a dream, nurtured the dream and used the dream to bless others. Quiet, yet with great and deep in influence; meek yet very courageous.

An obvious and secrete mentor to many… Through your life and ministry, many people, ministries, and nations have been influenced for Christ and by Christ. Now that the journey is over, you have finished the race, take your due rest. Good night Dr. John Edmond Haggai.

Dr Haggai you were a great inspiration to me. In 2006 I attended the training in Hawaii and from then my life as a minister was transformed. I launched ministry the same year and started training leaders as the core mandate. I didn’t end there, I was called to train as a faculty member. Through this I was able to reach many leaders from different continents. You impacted us so we could impact. We are grateful for you walk of faith.

Dr. John Edmund Haggai will always be a name living in my memory as he was responsible for sponsoring my leadership training in Kihei, East Lipoa, Maui, Hawaii, USA way back April to May, 2010 together with other gentlemen coming from all over the world. Dr. Haggai always had a positive and a warm, friendly approach to all Christian men of numerous denominations including Roman Catholics. It was a pity that I could not meet him directly in person in Maui as a video conference from Atlanta, Georgia was the only possible way at that time to interact with him. (He had to be with his wife, Christine, who was at that time suffering from Alzheimers.) But I did remember his remarks when he wanted to meet “The Professor from the Philippines” from the group which was yours truly and asked me how I was. It was a very touching moment really because it appeared like a Grandfather was casually asking how I was and how I was doing in the course so far. In fact, I remember during that conversation, he even asked me, “How do you feel now that you are among many Protestants?”. And I immediately answered, “It makes no difference Dr. Haggai, Sir. I have made many friends with them.” We both laughed after my reply. I realized that Dr. Haggai just wanted me to feel relaxed, at home, and at ease since the entire course was going to last a full 25 day period. I take this opportunity once again to thank Dr. Haggai for making it possible for me to open my eyes, heart, and mind about Christianity and the Christian World as a whole. Dr. Haggai also made me understand the spirit and wisdom of Ecumenism and Interfaith Dialogue. Thank you very much Dr. John Edmund Haggai! Rest well in the hands of the Lord!

The famous English novelist, poet Mary Ann Evans, known as George Eliot, said so eloquently:

Oh, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

This describes my time with John, knowing him during my time living in Atlanta.

The mark this great man of God has left will endure for ever.

John Haggai was my beloved brother-in-law. After my husband passed away, John called me every evening to ask if I’d had a good day … and to wish me a good evening.. I asked about his day and he always replied …”sensational!”

He always ended his call with the words … “remember … I love you.” and told him I loved him as well..

He will be missed more than I can imagine.. He was a powerful servant of God.
