  1. Dear Dr. John Richard,

    I thank God for the life of uncle John Richard who by his example and brotherly love supported and encouraged many servants of God including Dr. Emil Jebasingh of Vishwa Vani, India.

    May the Lord Jesus’ presence cover you and all your family members in this bereavement.

    With Love Bro. John Cyrus

  6. Revd D John Richard, dearly and respectfully called Thatha, had been ministering to me throughout my life without me being aware of it. Personally I met him in Syracuse in August 2017 when he and his son-in-law’s family welcomed my family on our first visit to the US. Though he was in his 90s he made it a point to attend the first birthday of my daughter Eliora and prayed for her. I saw him first praying in DBF service in 1992-92 . On reflection I realized that my father ( Supdt of our church Sunday school ) was trained by him through EFI Sunday School ministries and thus impacted my childhood. During my University days the speaking &evangelism ministry of his son Dr Ramesh ministered to me. I understood that a man devoted to God can touch people’s lives personally , through his lifeworks and even through his children. He was an example to follow, a reassurance to hold on to the Faith till the race is done. Praise be to God, thank you Jesus.
