“It has taken a little while to write this thanksgiving to God for the life of my dear friend Mike Ovey. I have indeed written tributes for other publications, news items, editorials, etc. But this is the one I knew I wanted to write and it has taken longer. This one is much more personal.
The reason for the delay is deep grief and a profound sense of loss. Another friend used the word ‘ambush’ to describe how grief can burst upon you unexpectedly and without notice. …”
– Dr. Mark Thompson, Principal of Moore College, has written this moving tribute to Mike Ovey, who was called home to be with Christ a month ago.
Update from Oak Hill College:
A service of thanksgiving for the life and ministry of Mike Ovey will be held on Monday 13 March 2017, at 2pm, at All Soul’s, Langham Place, London W1B 3DA. All are welcome to attend. Download the service invitation here.
