Reg Cowie dedicated the last few years of his life to Hope Prison Ministry, and we are saddened and humbled that he died “in the line of duty” on his way to a ministry event. He may have lost his life in an accident, but he deliberately chose to give us his love.
Reg led the Restorative Justice team in the Boland region. He led our outreach to the correctional officers, and he led many Bible studies. He brought great wisdom and experience to everything he did, but Reg’s legacy is his passion. Reg wept over the inmates with a father’s heart. His love brought hope to a fatherless generation of prison orphans. In his life we see a reflection of Jesus’ pure love, as represented in Reg’s favorite scripture:
“I was in prison, and you came to visit me… whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine you did for me.”
