HE WALKS WITH THE LORD


DONALD BUCHMAN
A MAN OF GOD - WENT HOME TO WALK WITH THE LORD ON MAY 3, 2013


Our hearts are heavy today, as our team - our family are grieving the loss of Don.  Our earthly hearts rejoice at the same time - knowing his healing is full and complete.  He no longer is restricted, as he has complete freedom in walking with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Don was instrumental in the founding of LAMb International.  He moved on to be the foundation of the legal work, the documentation, editing, and carrying out the role of President of LAMb USA.  He carried out duties of leadership, guidance and development.  Together with Johanna, the USA team moved the ministry of LAMb from 2002 to the present.

After an accident left Don with quadriplegia, he moved on in life to serve in ways that touched many.  With numerous hospital stays, his life became a witness to others of how God restores everything - even in the midst of what man may say is a tragedy.  He was a man of God, a teacher, a trainer, a counsellor, a mentor, a coach, a writer, the head of his family, a brother, a role-model, a sports fan, a father, grandfather and husband.

Johanna, Don's wife has walked side-by-side in the ministry of LAMb International with us.  Many times we four (Don, Johanna, Lynn and Ruby) have laughed and cried together at the honor it has been to be called to serve in His work...to be received into the family of God as missionaries.  We know we are such a "motley" crew.  Age, body limitations.  Yet all He really asked of Don was just to be obedient.

The obedience was given.  The race was run.  The journey completed.  And today Don's healing is complete.

Don - we your team - your family will miss your earthly presence and involvement with our team.  Yet your influence will never be far away.

LAMb International celebrates your life!

What a special tribute to Don!!! Wow - so amazing how God worked through Don in spite of his physical limitations. His life - what a beautiful testimony of God's love! Praying for Johanna & the family---but knowing that we share the peace & the great hope that we will all be together someday with Don when we meet Jesus. What a super promise!
