Arie was a kind, generous, person who lived out his faith in Christ. It was a privilege to know him and it is my prayer that his godly, loving and kind example will never be forgotten. He blessed so many people with his gentle presence. The Dutch phrase book that he gave me almost twenty years ago has been extremely helpful to me during my time in Belgium.

Arie was a dear friend and supporter. There are so many things we could say, but we are so grateful for his life and testimony in Jesus name. He has been a tremendous blessing to us personally and to our ministry for over 40 years. Blessings to AJ and the family at the time of sadness but also gratitude for Arie's faith and strength.
