Jerry Chapman- Tribute

Jerry was called home by The Lord and his transition left a vacancy in our lives and in our affections that cannot be filled. He occupied a unique place. He conceived of forming an entity to support the propagation of the message of Christ and of His Kingdom. He named that entity Ambassadors of the Kingdom and was the first person (together with June and Jane) to contribute financially to it. He served as President from its inception until his passing. He generously offered support to individuals and families in need as well as to significantly larger undertakings such as providing funds for the printing and distribution of bibles in Russian and Ukrainian. He oversaw the use of funds for conferences here in the United States and in numerous other countries such as Cuba, parts of Africa, Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean. Jerry not only directed the giving of funds, he also went to many of the locations where these conferences were held and addressed the audiences. He and June were major financial contributors to these efforts. He often undertook to raise the necessary funds by involving others as well. The list of things Jerry did as president of Ambassadors includes helping with equipment purchases and support for the website, the App, electronic publishing of books and Zoom meetings.

Our entire household benefited from his selfless and generous service. We shall be eternally grateful to God for showing up so wonderfully in Jerry Chapman. His memory will always remind us of the love of God!
