David Wilkerson Killed in Car Crash

It was with great sadness that I learned today of the death of David Wilkerson in a car accident in East Texas on Wednesday.

David Wilkerson, who was 79, founded Times Square Church in 1987. He was the respected author of many widely known Christian books such as The Cross and the Switchblade, which was also made into a film.

David's wife, Gwen, was also involved in the accident, which I understand was a head-on collision with a tractor trailer whilst travelling East on US 175, and she is still in a critical condition. My thoughts and prayers are with Gwen and the rest of the family at this time, and also with the members of Times Square Church.

I have had the privilege of publishing occasional articles by David Wilkerson in The Voice Christian News & Views, and his articles have always enriched both the readers and the publication.

He worked tirelessly for the Lord for much of his life, and was regarded by many as the greatest living prophet in the USA today. His legacy of writings and teachings will be of value to those seeking to know the Lord Jesus Christ in the future for many generations to come, I have no doubt. Equally, I have no doubt that this eminent soldier for Christ will have a place appointed for him with our Lord, and will hear the words that we all long for, "Well done, true and faithful servant.
