YWAM Staff in Car Crash
In Malawi on Monday, 7th of January 2008, four YWAMers survived a serious car crash after the bus they were traveling in overturned.
YWAM Mzuzu leader, Amanda van Saasen send out this text message from Malawi: “Last night at 10pm a Coach Line bus overturned on a mountain with 4 YWAMers on board, 3 Brazilians on outreach and one Malawian staff from the Mzuzu base. There are all fine: just cuts, bruises and shock. It is a miracle not a single person died in the accident. I found them all just after midnight huddled together with the rest of the passengers next to the bus, praying in the mist and the rain. They are now all safe with me in Blantyre. Thank you for praying.”
The incidence of public transport accidents is notoriously high in Africa, and most YWAM staff travel in this way. Over the years many fellow YWAMers have been involved in similar road accidents. In your prayer times please thank God for His protection and continue to ask for the safety of all our staff.
