On 11 March 2021 Christians around the world had to say Goodbye to another great hero of the faith, global evangelist Luis Palau (1934 – 2021)
Now, nine days after the passing of the beloved evangelist his family and close friends are set to gather for an intimate service in his honor. The Luis Palau Memorial, which had to be kept small due to Covid-19 regulations, will be live-streamed on Facebook as well as on The Luis Palau memorial website. According to the Luis Palau Association, no registration is necessary. All are welcome and encouraged to tune in.
“We wish we could all be together in person,” shared Kevin Palau on social media earlier this week, “but we know even over a video stream this time will be incredibly meaningful. Dad’s wish for his memorial was that it would be a time to praise and glorify the King of Heaven. And that’s exactly what we’ll do.”
The Luis Palau Memorial will start at 2pm PDT on March 20 th. It will include words from close family and friends, music by Matt Redman and a performance by the Gospel choir from Salem Baptist Church of Chicago.
“The service will be a great time to remember and celebrate the life of our Dad, Luis Palau,” said Andrew Palau, one of Luis’ four sons and co-evangelist for the past 15 years. “But just as Dad would have wanted, it will also be a wonderful time to honor the Lord and proclaiming His Good News. We really hope many will tune in, share it with their friends, and be deeply encouraged by the message we share—the same message Dad shared for his entire life.”
For those who want to share a testimony or memory of Luis, or who want to write a note to the family, they can do so at LuisPalau.org. Thousands from around the world have shared encouraging, personal messages and videos, many of which are currently being highlighted on the site.
The Luis Palau Association has also put together a special commemorative book for the service on Saturday. Individuals interested in their own free copy of this commemorative book, My Life in Seven Words, or in giving a memorial gift to continue the work of the Luis Palau Association, can do so on the website.
