Missionary Pioneer T.L. Osborn passed from this world two days ago into eternal glory. He has ministered for over 65 years in 100 nations.
I was reading this quote just the other day in my research on Thailand.
Thai Church Historian Herb Swanson writes, “The Osborn Crusade, which took place in 1956, is one of the most important events in post-War Thai Protestant history and also one of the least studied and understood.”

T.L. Osborn was a unique healing evangelist that God used to spark a new wave of outreach and church planting in Thailand. He is an example of a faithful flame that burns bright all the way till the end. He will be remembered by many as a man God used to spread the full Gospel message all over the world.
This is a good article about his legacy by J. Lee Grady: Why T.L. Osborn Is My Hero.
