Pastor David Wilkerson Killed In Head On Car Collision

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I inform you that the beloved Pastor  David Wilkerson, founding pastor of Times Square Church in New York City has been killed in a head on car collison April 27.

Crash Details
Wilkerson was driving east on U.S. 175 in Texas Wednesday afternoon, and moved into the opposite lane where a tractor trailer was driving westbound. The truck driver saw the car and tried to move out of the way, but still collided with the pastor's car head on, according to Public Safety Trooper Eric Long. 
It's unclear what caused Wilkerson to veer into the other lane.  His wife Gwen was also involved in the crash and rushed to the hospital, along with the truck driver.

Wilkerson was pronounced dead on the scene.

Last Words
Wilkerson posted a blog dated April 27 -- the day of his death. In the post, titled "When All Means Fail," he encouraged those facing difficulty to "hold fast" and stand strong in faith.
"To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights, and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, "I am with you,'" Wilkerson wrote. "Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail-his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world."

  1. A warrior has gone home....
    how sad that our ranks have gone down one. I believe we're ever closer to the dawn of the end. We need more warriors to stand and take his place. My husband was discouraged by this news, even though we know where he is, it's hard to lose a comrade.
    Jesus is forever our Captain and we must now rally round His banner.
    I will say this over and over again Toni, you are a blessing. Ever since I found your blog I enjoy reading it :)
    Thank you
