Dallas church mourns soldier killed in Afghanistan

WFAA-TV in Dallas-Fort Worth reports:

DALLAS — U.S. Army Pfc. Devon Harris was only 24 years old when his vehicle came under attack in Afghanistan last month.
On Monday, friends and family came together at Southern Hills Church of Christ in Dallas to remember the life he led.
Harris played the violin and loved his church; that’s the way friends and family remembered him.
With a sunshine smile and a gentle spirit, Harris had hundreds of friends. Their prayers followed him to Afghanistan.
But on November 27 — after an attack by a rocket-propelled grenade — Harris left this message on his Facebook page: “My time is over.”

Southwestern Christian College has dedicated a scholarship to honor Harris, the television station reported.

    His time is over…but only because he is now where time does not pass.
    May we all be as dedicated to self-sacrifice and standing firm in whatever warfare we face from day to day, whether it be physical or spiritual–or both!

    May God richly bless this family for this loss and give them peace knowing that God will not forget his child that gave up his life for others.
