ERIC & SYLVIA BEDIAKO Eric first met Brother TB in 1969 at a Scripture Union Rally at Prempeh College in Kumasi. He was his Pastor (Travelling Secretary) at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science Technology (KNUST) from 1969 until 1974. Eric was with Brother TB at the Larteh Campaign, making the initial contacts. He arranged for Eric to join the team to the Pan African Christian Leadership Assembly (PACLA) in Nairobi in December 1976 and that changed Eric’s life. Brother TB was Eric’s mentor at the London Bible College from 1979 to 1980 when he was a final year student and Eric a first-year student. Sylvia met Uncle TB in 1976/77 in his final year as Travelling Secretary at the University of Cape Coast. She had the great privilege of being in the Dankwas’ home at least one Saturday every month for a meal and fellowship and playing with Ama and Akosua in London in 1978/79. Uncle TB, Dr. Virginia, Ama, Akosua, and Kwadwo (baby) were at our wedding in Chelmsford, Essex in August 1980. He also encouraged Eric in his Bible teaching at church for the last four decades. Brother TB and Dr. Virginia have always come to visit us whenever we visit Ghana with a food parcel. It is just unimaginable that we will not see Uncle TB in-person in our next visit to Ghana. We are grateful to God for Uncle TB’s great influence on our lives. We know that Uncle TB is at peace now and resting in our Lord’s bosom.
