The following is a word from the consensus of all of our Board of Directors, written by Craig James.
“Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished. And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days. So the days of weeping and mourning for Moses ended. Now Joshua...” (Deut. 34:7-9a). Moses was called and used of God in a mighty way to lead the people of Israel. Bro. Ed Lacy was a Moses in our day. God called him and used him in a mighty way as an Evangelist, Teacher, Discipler, and Mentor for thousands of people around the world. We have grieved and will continue to grieve his passing. His life and death was in the Sovereign hands of our Lord. God called Bro. Ed home; but, his life and ministry will continue. Bro. Ed invested his life into preaching, teaching, and sharing the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.
We will greatly miss our dear brother in Christ, but we can be assured, according to the Word of God, that he is home with our Lord. He is with the ONE who loved him, saved him, and called him to ministry. He is with the ONE whom he served faithfully until the end. Bro. Ed ran “his race, finished his course, and kept the faith.”
Now, as Moses died and God called Joshua to step up and lead His people, we must continue to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our Lord will faithfully raise up men, as He is already doing, to carry on the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. Our Lord will continue to use the sermons, workbooks, and tracts from Ed Lacy Ministries. We do not want to see this work diminish, but rather increase to the entire world. We want all the pastors and missionaries around the world, which are partners with Ed Lacy Ministries, to continue to receive support and help from this ministry.
Therefore, we ask you to prayerfully continue to stand with Ed Lacy Ministries. Friends, we have witnessed that through your love, your generous giving, your prayers and your faithfulness to our Lord have blessed thousands upon thousands. We thank you so much for co-laboring with this ministry. The work must go on until Jesus returns. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is our only hope for mankind. Bro. Ed is home, but his work here on earth will continue to bless many around the world. We hope you will join us in that great work.
In Christ as His servant, Craig James – Board Member
