Last week one of our former pastors, Rev. Samuel Ward, went to be with the Lord. Rev. Ward served the congregation of Calvin from 1964 until his retirement in 1982. I am glad to say that his ministry is still bearing fruit today. Although I never met Rev. Ward, I am personally grateful for his faithfulness, and I praise God that he finished his long race strong in the Lord. A brief article on Rev. Ward can be found at The Aquila Report.
