Tragic Accident

Posted by curtmort on October 13, 2009

We received word early this morning that one of our Project 12 students has been killed in an automobile accident. We are temporarily witholding the name but asking for prayer for all the rest of our students. We are waiting on his parents and pastors for information on the memorial service. The young man lost was a leader and well liked by all the students and staff. We will post more information here as we receive it.

Sincerely, In Jesus Love,

Curt Mortimer Administrator
