On Friday August 17th, our missionaries, Scott and Tracy Blackburn, received a phone that every parent dreads – their daughter had been killed. They were thousands of miles away in the Amazon jungle town of Puerto Maldonado. By Sunday, they had arrived on Canadian soil.

A memorial fund is being set up. More information to follow.
