Even though it has been a decade since Pastor Chuck’s passing, his voice still resonates in the ears of those who were touched by his teachings. Whether it was his meticulous verse-by-verse exposition or the profound words of wisdom he shared at various conferences, Pastor Chuck’s impact remains palpable. Even at the Bible College in Peru, where John Bonner faced numerous decisions, he could hear Chuck’s guiding voice, advising him on what to do and what to avoid. Chuck emphasized the importance of relying on the leading of the Holy Spirit rather than one’s own wisdom, might, or abilities. Day after day, Pastor Chuck continues to exert a profound influence on John’s life.
John expresses eternal gratitude towards Pastor Chuck for faithfully teaching God’s word, issuing warnings, and challenging believers to depend on God and His Holy Spirit rather than their own efforts and wisdom. While the loss of Pastor Chuck is deeply felt, his influence will endure in Peru and around the world through the timeless concepts, ideas, and words he shared many years ago.
