Bishop S. K. Parma, an outstanding leader in World Methodist Evangelism, has entered into the Church Triumphant. We offer praise to God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit for the faithful life of Bishop S.K. Parmar. It has been my joy and privilege to share with our dear brother and friend for the past 25 years. Bishop Parmar has served as one of the key leaders in World Methodist Evangelism as a Regional Secretary for India, Central and Southern Asia, for more than two decades. He is respected by leaders in the World Methodist family. Whenever he spoke in our gatherings of World Methodist Evangelism, people listened to his wisdom and witness.
When we set in his presence we were inspired to live as faithful believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. On many occasions in India I stood alongside him in great gatherings of thousands and also in rural villages with gratitude and thanksgiving for his faith and commitment as a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. In one of his last messages to the World Methodist/Wesleyan Movement he gave this word of challenge: “May the Holy Spirit activate the Methodist people to seize this moment for spreading the message of Jesus Christ in the world.” Today we give thanks and praise for Bishop S. K. Parmar.
