SU South Africa extends condolences to the family and friends of Alf Friend who passed away recently.
Alf served SU faithfully over many years and in various capacities, from running Beach Missions to ultimately finishing off his working career as SU’s Bible Resources Co-ordinator from 1998 until 2006. During this time, he pioneered SU’s range of “home-grown” daily Bible-reading guides and helped build the capacity of local writers to contribute in this area.
Alf’s attention to detail was legendary! But his warmth, generosity and pastoral role in the SU staff team and broader volunteer family will be remembered fondly.
SU will miss Alf’s presence – but we thank God for his amazing contribution to the movement over many decades. His legacy with regard to helping young people and adults engage with God in the Bible is immense.
Thank you Alf! We salute a life lived for God and for young people.
