At Home with the Lord

I was informed yesterday that on Friday, April 25, 2008 Elder DJ Ward was found absent from his body yet present with the Lord. Elder Ward was an elder in every since of the word. His warmth for people and his dedication to the gospel will be missed. Yet, the roll of elders in heaven just became one more closer to being complete. For this we rejoice.
Here is a clip I posted earlier this year. I just believe it captures the heart of the man, whom I knew only briefly but felt his passion for the gospel deeply. I can imagine him getting to heaven and proclaiming one more time, "I'm a grace case!"

Here John Piper gives his reflections on Elder Ward.
