Dr. Les Thompson was Founder and Pastor-At-Large of LOGOI Ministries. He authored 13 books including More Than Marvelous, Letters to Carlos, and The Person I Am. Dr. Thompson was a popular speaker, Bible teacher and theologian who traveled extensively throughout South and Central America teaching pastors and Bible teachers. He had a passion for learning and education and a great love for good books. Les and his wife Carolyn celebrated 50 years of marriage before the Lord took him home on August 30, 2011. He is survived by his wife, their four sons, 14 grandchildren, and two great-granddaughters at the time of this writing.
Ed Thompson is a joyful third-generation missionary, the President of LOGOI Ministries, and Dr. Les Thompson’s youngest son. Along with his work at LOGOI, Ed is a past winner of the Gospel Music Association Christian soloist competition, a recording artist, the author of “Mission Adventures” and dozens of humorous articles in newspapers and magazines. He also says he ate an asparagus (but claims it was an accident). Three singles from Ed’s latest CD project, “Beautiful Feet,” made Christian Radio & Retails TOP 100 Global Spins for the year (’09). Ed is a Wheaton College graduate, loves Cuban food, often laughs at his own jokes, likes baseball and drives a pickup truck — which obviously means he listens to country music.
