Kiribati National Representative Passes Away

It is with deep sadness that the Church of God in Asia Pacific announces the passing of Sister Tewetewe Tekaie Randolph, the National Representative in Kiribati.

After a brief hospitalization in the capital city of Tarawa in the south Pacific island nation, Sister Randolph, a licensed ordained minister, succumbed to her illness on March 1, 2021.

While Tewetewe Tekaie Randolph only began her tenure as National Representative in 2018, her impact for Christ and upon the church in Kiribati and elsewhere have been notable for decades. Known as a warm, caring person, Sister Randolph brought a positive influence to every setting she ever graced with her presence, along with needed administrative gifts.

Condolences have flowed in from her colleagues in the Austral Asia region, as well as former school friends. Numerous tribute comments and statements on Facebook have given a glimpse into her extraordinary life and impact.

Like so many leaders in unknown places, Tewetewe Randolph embodied the best of the church with her passion to serve and win her people to the Lord Jesus Christ. She went the extra mile, yet knowing her work was not in vain.

Randolph, born December 25, 1965, was an undergraduate of West Coast Christian College, and completed a Master of Arts in Christian Education at the Asian Seminary of Christian Ministries (ASCM) in 1992.

She leaves behind her husband, Arowii Randolph, and a son, Kaiarake. Please continue to pray for Kiribati and the work of Church of God World Missions in the South Pacific.

World Missions Director David M. Griffis and Assistant Director M. Thomas Propes join with Asia/Pacific Field Director Andrew Binda and Austral Asia Regional Superintendent Marc Morris in expressing their sorrow in the loss of this wonderful leader.
