One dead, 15 injured on Honduran mission trip

From the Baptist Press...

A mission to Honduras turned deadly July 26 when the brakes failed on a vehicle carrying volunteers down a steep mountain, killing one and injuring at least 15 in the ensuing crash.

The volunteers were part of a group of 20 -- including teenagers, college students and adults -- from First Baptist Church in New Albany, Miss.

“They took large amounts of medical supplies with them, and they were there to do as much as they could with medical work and dental work and whatever there was a need for,” Paul Sizemore, student minister at FBC New Albany, told Baptist Press. “They were going there to do Bible distribution, Vacation Bible School, construction, various things that were needed.”

Sizemore refrained from giving specific details about the accident and the status of those involved until family members could be contacted. He said the weeklong trip was the first international mission trip the church had taken in several years, although they’re frequently active in missions within the United States.

My wife has made two such trips to Nicaragua. Keep the church in your prayers. This will be tough on them.
