Council of Nagalim Churches condoles death of Rev Dr John A Sundquist

He was a true friend, who had a genuine love and concern for the Naga people.

The  Council of Nagalim Churches (CNC) has expressed its sorrow and said that it was “deeply saddened” at the demise of  Rev. Dr. John A. Sundquist, former Executive Director of American Baptist International Ministries.

“Our beloved Rev. Dr. John A. Sundquist, former Executive Director of American Baptist International Ministries, has gone to be with the Lord on Sunday, February 21,2021 from his beloved home at Bethany Beach in Swayer, Michigan, USA. 

According to the CNC, Rev Dr John was a passionate missionary, a peacemaker and a person who had a heart for providing justice, liberty, and upliftment of the downtrodden people like the Nagas. The CNC said he was a true friend, who had a genuine love and concern for the Naga people. 

According to the CNC, in 1998 when the Naga people boycotted Indian election and opted for solution and not election, Rev Dr John took the initiative to write 6000 letters to churches around the world to pray and support the Naga issue. “Later, he also participated in Naga reconciliation meetings organised by FNR (Forum for Naga Reconciliation). His good deeds towards the Nagas will always be remembered and cherished. It is our sincere prayer that the Good Lord will reward him abundantly in heaven,” the CNC added.

In his demise the Nagas have lost a true friend, a sincere supporter and a fervent prayer partner, and the vacuum created by his loss will be very hard to fill, said the CNC.

On behalf of all the churches in Nagalim, the “CNC conveys our heartfelt condolences to the lady wife Mrs. Carol Sundquist, children, grandchildren and other family members. May the good Lord comfort you and grant you peace in this difficult hour of great loss and grief!”
