I come to you tonight asking for prayers for our community. We just inaugurated an airport in Gracias yesterday. As part of the ceremony people could pay to take a short flight around Gracias. Lots of people payed to do this and all of our students were distracted though out the day watching the low-flying planes. However early afternoon, one plane had engine trouble, crashing near our school. Many of our young students saw the plane go down but thankfully due to trees did not see the actually crash nor understand the extent of it. Quickly though, word got out who was on the plane and the fact that there were no survivors. Along with the young pilot there were three others from Gracias killed. One lady had 2 children who attend our school- 4th and 9th grade. Another mother and adult son were also in the plane. They and their family are originally from Gracias so they have many relatives- grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins all go to our school. These sudden and tragic deaths have rocked our little school and city. Please be in prayer for the families of these victims as well as the pilot, especially remember the young children who are now left without their mom. Pray for wisdom for Shannon and our teachers as they comfort the students and point them to God’s arms. Thank you for continually being willing to pray for those you do not know. We can always tell when we are covered in prayer.
