I joined IFES in 1998, but although I did not have the honour of working directly with Rev T.B. Dankwa I saw the fruit of his ministry in the amazing leaders and thriving national ministries IFES English & Portuguese-speaking Africa. I am thankful that in more recent years I had the pleasure of meeting T.B. and spending time with him in Ghana and South Africa. I have very good memories of an orientation and training event for new IFES Regional Secretaries which we held just outside of Accra. We invited Rev T.B and Dr Virginia to spend time with us and share about life and ministry. It was such a joyful and inspiring evening of fellowship and learning. T.B’s servant heart, sense of fun, and deep love for God’s word came through so powerfully. Many in IFES have been praying for our brother T.B. during the last months. We mourn his passing, but we are also thankful for the life and ministry of this good and faithful servant of the LORD.
