Great Loss and Urgent Prayer Needed
MVI has experienced a great loss as a family today. This morning (April 18) Norberto and Julie Kurrle and their children (Field Coordinators in Paraguay) were involved in a car accident and Julie and their son Timmy were killed. She was killed at the scene and their son Timmy died in his father’s arms on the way to the hospital. Their little girl is still hospitalized and we understand is in good condition. Norberto was not significantly injured in the accident. Julie is sister to Dave Beam who works in our office here in Orlando.
Our hearts are broken and we are grieving this loss, but we know that Julie and Timmy are fully alive in heaven now and this separation from them is only momentary.
Please, lift up Norberto and daughter Anahi in prayer.
