Dear Friends,

Thank you for your prayers and your many kind words after hearing about my father’s situation yesterday. We are blessed and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and care we have received from so many of you.

With profound grief and sorrow, I am now writing to inform you that my father, and our ministry’s founder, K.P. Yohannan (Metropolitan Yohan), departed in the presence of God this morning, May 8, 2024. He passed in Dallas, Texas, due to a sudden cardiac arrest while receiving treatment for the tragic accident of the day before when he was struck by a car while on his morning walk.

While our hearts are broken over his sudden loss, we rejoice knowing his joy in being received into the long-awaited presence of his loving Savior.

We praise God for allowing His servant the strength to run his race faithfully and with much endurance to the very end. Millions of lives are forever transformed because of his tireless passion and service unto his Savior. His life bears testimony to us all of what Jesus said in St. Matthew 16:24, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

Thank you again for your continued prayers for my family and all of us at GFA World during this time. Our hope remains steadfast in the goodness of God, and we look forward with confidence that the work He has begun through this ministry will continue to change and transform lives around the world through the love of Christ in the years ahead.

Christ is risen! May his memory be eternal.

In Him,
Daniel Timotheos (Yohannan)

P.S. Details on the funeral and memorial service will be made public in the days to come.
