The president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, Michael Ramsden, has shared an update on health of its founder, Ravi Zacharias, after it was announced that he has terminal cancer.
Tributes and thanks have been pouring in for the much-loved apologist and preacher after RZIM CEO Sarah Davis revealed that there was nothing more doctors could do medically to save his life.
Yesterday, Michael Ramsden said he visited Ravi and spent some "precious moments with the Zacharias family."
He added: "Amongst a few other things that Ravi-ji shared with us personally, he wanted to send on to you his deepest love and sincerest thanks. Although he can only speak in a whisper, his passion for Jesus Christ, for the Gospel, and for the heart and vision of our team is unwavering. If anything, there were moments when you could only say that his passion burns even brighter.
"His message to us in many ways was very straightforward: Keep following Christ and keep preaching the Gospel. This we will keep on doing; it is the reason why RZIM exists."
Ramsden noted that "only our Lord knows how much time Ravi-ji has, but it appears the time for him to be with the Lord he loved to serve is drawing near."
He concluded: "We continue to seek strength in the Lord in these days. As Lamentations says, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
