More Information Concerning Adam

I had a chance to tell some of Adam’s story in chapel at the Harding Grad School of Religion today. People need to hear about Adam because he is a perfect example of living, sacrificing, and dying for the sake of the Gospel. What faith and courage he had! We can all learn from it.

If you have a chance, please go to Clint Davis’s blog to read some beautiful words about Adam and about Moses, a fellow worker who died in the same wreck as Adam. Moses leaves behind 4 children and a wife, and it is touching to read about him. They called him Moses the Carpenter, and he devoted himself to the work of the Lord. What a great loss for his family and for the mission effort in Uganda.

Also, on Clint’s blog, there are a couple addresses where you can send money to help out with all the emergency expenses resulting from this tragedy. Plane tickets, funeral arrangements, etc. It adds up quick, and if you are in a position to help, please consider these options:

Funds can be sent to:
Rochester Church of Christ
250 W. Avon Road
Rochester Hills, MI 48307
attn: Jinja Emergency Fund

This fund will cover missionaries’ travel expenses back home, those traveling to Uganda and Moses’ burial / funeral expenses in Uganda.

For the Langford family and funeral expenses, donations can be sent to:
East County Church of Christ
24375 SE Stark
Gresham, OR 97030
attn: Langford Family Fund
