MR says: This missionary was in an accident on Tuesday and has been on life support since then (read a previous story). His family, friends, and missionary companion are in our prayers.

Elder Taylor Shane Ward, 19, an LDS missionary from Vacaville, Calif., has died from his injuries sustained Tuesday in an automobile accident near Pocatello, Idaho.

Members of the missionary's family had traveled from California to be with him, and they were there at the time of his death, church officials said.

Elder Ward was a passenger in a car driven by his missionary companion, Elder John Floyd, of Deep Run, N.C. Police reports indicate that the passenger side of the missionaries' car was hit by a pickup truck when the missionaries' car failed to yield at a stop sign.

Poor Elder Floyd must be feeling pretty desperate right now but I hope he and all of Elder Ward's family can be comforted by the knowledge that all faithful Elders who depart this life continue with their labours in the Spirit World.
