Dear Increase Family and Friends,

cm 236

With much sorrow we received the news of Zafar Ismail’s passing away after a long-term illness on the night of April 11, ushering in the day when we celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord.

Brother Zafar was one of the pioneers of TEE in Pakistan and other countries, he was one of the founders of Increase Association in 2006 and a former Increase Committee Chair.

We will be missing him greatly as a friend, a colleague, a teacher and a counsellor. Zafar was truly a man after God’s own heart. We knew him as a wise man, a visionary, a humble servant of God. For many he was an example and a role model of a godly Christian leader committed to prayer and God’s work. We thank God for the precious gift of brother Zafar’s life, for his talents, his warm personality and kindness and for a great opportunity and privilege to work, pray and plan things with him and to learn from him.

We pass our condolences to brother Zafar’s family – his daughters and grandchildren. We pray for God’s peace and comfort.
We thank God for the hope He gives to us that we will meet again in His eternal city to be never separated again.

Increase Association is working on arranging a space for Increase members and friends to share their memories, photos and condolences.

Anneta Vysotskaya

Chair of Increase Association Committee
