A tribute to John Caldwell

On December 10th, 2020, ORPHANetwork founding board member, John Caldwell, went home to be with the Lord. John helped us get started 20 years ago and he never missed an opportunity to promote our ministry and champion for the children in Nicaragua. Even in his last few weeks spent in the hospital when John could, he didn’t miss the chance to tell the nurses about ORPHANetwork.

“When the band of high school misfits were stirring up trouble in Nicaragua in the 90’s, it was John and Michael that came down to check things out. He was there the very moment the vision of ORPHANetwork was born. He has left quite the legacy. What a wonderful, faithful man!” –Tyler Tuite, Board Member and former Executive Director

“In addition to the thousands of lives that have been impacted in Nicaragua, John’s faithfulness to his calling had a direct impact on how God has used each of us for His Kingdom. I will always be grateful for him and his faithfulness.” –Tommy Weiglein, former National Program Director

We are celebrating the life of John, knowing he is with the Lord, and we are confident that he has received the words “well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matthew 25:23).
