Dr. Terry Law has passed from this life and joined the great cloud of witnesses. We are saddened to report that the founder of World Compassion, Terry Law, has passed from this life and joined the great cloud of witnesses (described by the writer of Hebrews) on August 31st, 2020 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In the midst of our tears, we celebrate Terry’s life, his boldness, his vision and his courage to go where few were willing to go — to reach the unreached with the saving message of Jesus Christ. We are convinced that his life influenced millions to embrace the good news of the Gospel.
