Tyler Wilkerson, son of Pastor John Wilkerson, went to Heaven last night. He was only 17 years old. He had just finished serving as a counselor at a Christian camp. He was a very fine young man.
The following is from the email that I received telling me of the accident before I called Pastor Wilkerson.
Please pray for Pastor Wilkerson and Family as they mourn the loss of their oldest son, Tyler (17). Tyler was traveling with a church family Friday, August 15, when a car pulled in front of them and caused an accident. Tyler died of internal injuries.
Pastor Wilkerson is the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Long Beach, California. He is one of the finest men that I have ever known. I want to ask you to please pray for him and his family.
I can’t imagine what they must be going through right now but he said that God was giving them grace and thanked me for the phone call and for praying. Please pray for them.
