I vividly remember the first visit of DrHaggai’s Team to Uganda in 1987. I was in my first year as Director of Research in the Bank of Uganda ( Uganda’s Central Bank) and economic adviser to the Minister of Finance.. His team organized a special evangelical meeting with key officials engaged in restoring the economy of Uganda that had been devastated by fifteen years of war and mismanagement (1971-1986). Dr. Haggai brought a refreshing and powerful message of vision, commitment and direction. Where there was despair he brought confidence. Where there was gloom he promised achievement through systematic management.
We continued listening to the team for several days at State House. I still remember his final word at State House: “direction”. He said the most important message to us was that we have the correct “direction.”
They gave us amazing literature which I read with unusual hunger. They were the best and uniquely relevant books for our devastated economic times.
In 1995 I had the opportunity to join two Ugandan bishops to the Haggai Institute in Hawaii. Despite the very long journey from Uganda to Hawaii, we dived into the training program with full inspiration and enthusiasm. I still remember Dr Haggai’s challenge about “calling for a verdict!” I had no idea what he was talking about at the time! It was much later that I understood he was talking about making an “altar call.” There were many memorable moments and lessons like “teaching an old dog new tricks” and the monkey’s ass being exposed the higher up it went on the tree: the more important you become the more exposed is your integrity or lack thereof.
I have no doubt his unique evangelism impacted millions for good. He brought the gospel to the nations and expounded it in a way that truly glorified God. He glorified God. I am sure God will say to him: well done good and faithful servant. May his soul rest in eternal glory. Sincerely,
EZRA Suruma

I am very grateful to the Lord for the life and sincere dedication of Dr John Haggai. I have attended Haggai Institute Leadership Training in Singapore way back in 1992. That was the year before the Lord called me to be a missionary pastor in the UAE. The training that I had in Singapore was very instrumental in steadying my journey for many years. The journey has been very fruitful. The determination and commitment of Dr Haggai to train Christian leaders for the Kingdom of God inspired me to do the same. He surely will be missed but the fruit of his labour has now been planted in many parts of the world.
