On Monday morning, January 31, 2022, WEI lost one of its greatest champions. David and Lola Crouch have been actively involved in WEI for 26 years. During this time, they became WEI teachers, ambassadors, supporters, administrators, and awesome champions of WEI.
David was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He worked hard at Harding University in Public Relations for 42 years. David lived a wonderful, incredible life while always putting others before himself. He was a devoted Christian man who loved his family, church family, Harding family, and his community. David was a tireless servant and a mighty warrior for God. To God be the glory.
Our brother David was actively involved in and supported the mission work in Uruk Otong, Nigeria with World English Institute International Digital Evangelism (WEI-IDEA) which was created to mobilize Christians for effective evangelism within and outside Africa. David and Lola had a very tender, compassionate, and generous heart for the work in Nigeria.
David loved being a WEI Internet teacher. He taught over 800 precious students from all around the world. In the last several months of his life, David partnered with Richard and Pamela Haines and several other WEI teachers in a special effort to teach and encourage every student in Myanmar. He participated in a weekly prayer Zoom session with students and teachers. David woke up every day with a great desire to be light and love to everyone, especially his WEI students.
David was one of the best encouragers and servants I have ever known. He was always willing to go the extra mile. David lived every day as a humble disciple and follower of Christ.
David loved Lola just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her. Together, they were one in Spirit and one in the Lord for 52 years. David was her constant rock and soulmate. He would do anything for Lola. Truly, David Crouch was a man after God’s own heart.
