Till We Meet Again

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of David Wishart, a long time teacher and friend of Westwood Christian School and First Baptist Church of Westwood Lake. His wife Christine’s text read, “David is with Jesus!  We were all together in the room with him.  Our time with him while he was still alert was beautiful.  Thank you for your prayers.”

David Wishart was more than just a science teacher and cross-country coach at Westwood Christian. He meant so much to our students! Alumnus Emma Thomson Quaglia wrote, “He was my running coach, science teacher, a spiritual hero, and a mentor to me. Soon after his diagnosis, he compared it to running as he often did with difficult things in life. He told me we are all running a race of life that will end. Some turn a corner and are surprised that it is over so quickly. Some can see it coming as they run on a flat plane. He said he felt blessed to know it was coming. He spoke into my life since I was 12 years old and I am so grateful for the way he showed Jesus in every area of his life. He is already so missed.”

Mr. Wishart, thank you for being a living testimony of God’s grace, compassion and love. You will be greatly missed!
