Memories of Deepak

We sat down today with Bring Good News international Director Rick Wolford, who shared one of his favorite Deepak stories with us:

I met Deepak on my first trip to India in 2003.  I was quickly impressed with his enthusiasm and commitment to Christ.  It was obvious to anyone who knew Deepak that he had a passion for winning his people to the Lord.  I experienced Deepak’s deep compassion for the hurting and his willingness to do what he could to help them on that visit to India.

Deepak and I were riding in his car with one of his pastors driving, when we hit a farm tractor that pulled out in front of us.  I ended up with a severely dislocated elbow and my right arm in a sling.  It became almost amusing how much Deepak helped me because I couldn’t use my arm.  He felt so bad because I was injured while visiting him.  That happened over 10 years ago and Deepak would still ask me how my arm was doing almost every time I saw him.

I, like all who knew him, am deeply saddened by his passing.  However, I rejoice that Deepak, like the Apostle Paul, can say, “I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day.”  (II Timothy 4:7,8)  Please continue to join me in prayer for Simmi, their children, and all those associated with North India Christian Mission during this time of mourning.
