Not sure what to say?

Just heard of the good dr's passing. Wonderful slave of his Master. From the early days of Liberty I remember him saying. "I'd rather be here than in the hospital with three broken legs", or "I'd rather be here than in the best jail in town." Rare combination of godliness and humor. Everyone,I'm sure, that crossed his path loved him

My favorite teacher at Liberty in the late 70's--New Testament Survey. I still remember his classes and the impression they made on my life. Special, special man of God.

Aside from his Godliness, Dr Wemp was my favorite teacher in my 4 yrs at liberty, mainly because of his inspiring personality. This earth just lost a tremendous person, and heaven just gained one. See ya in a few years brother.

Dr. Wemp was a mentor to me, a man I highly respected and loved. He made a great contribution to my life.

Ive never met Dr. wemp, I ran across him somehow on the internet, it had to be God led, i was always blessed by him. He always encouraged me and I called him my adopted pastor. I feel I would not have made it through some of the storms i ernt through without him, he was like no other, he and Celeste. They are both in glory with the Lord now which is what they both looked forward too. Bless his family, thank you all for sharing him with us.

I first knew Dr. Wemp when I enrolled in the Liberty Bible Institute in the late 1980's. I had the pleasure to meet and get to know him when we both worshipped and witnessed together at First Baptist Dallas. He taught me the meaning of the full Gospel and I will be forever grateful for his mentoring. What a giant he was in bringing lost souls to Christ! See you in Heaven, and thank you Sumner.

Just learned of Dr. Wemp's homegoing. He had a tremendous impact on our lives and we will be eternally grateful. We are rejoicing with Dr. Wemp's celebration, and grieve with his precious family's loss.

Family: I thank God or the honor on knowing Dr. wemp. He was my evangelism professor at Moody.

I will never forget Dr. Wemp and his consistent greeting of "Well glory"! Now he is in glory, worshiping the Lord and receiving his rewards. Even though I only met Dr. Wemp once or twice, he was a gracious man, loving toward his wife and family, and a mentor to many. I was a student of Mrs. Wemp's while at Liberty and will never forget her kind, sweet spirit. May God be close to the Wemp family during this time of grief yet rejoicing in God's comfort and hope of eternity!
