Five Christian students who came from visiting a Bible College met a car accident that heartbreakingly took the lives of young adults.
Christian Students Die In A Car Accident
On Sunday, an unexpected incident befell upon five students who were excitingly visiting a Bible College in Wyoming. Unfortunately, on their way home, a truck crashed into their Ford F-150 head-on, and the five died. Others involved in the accident were also “critically injured.”According to KATV, the identified students who passed away were Sylvan Hills High School seniors Susana “Suzy” Prime and Ava Luplow, both 18. And three recent graduates, Salomon Correa, 21, Maggie Franco, 20, and 23-year-old Andrea Prime.”
The five young adults apparently went to the same church, Faith Bible Fellowship in Arkansas. And to mourn and honor their lives, the church initiated a candlelight vigil outside the church center, which “more than 100 people” attended.
Also, friends and loved ones of some of the students shared stories and memories with the faithful young believers.
Quint Scruggs, a former Sylvan Hills High School schoolmate, remembered the two as “joyful” people.
“I mean there was never a dull moment, always made you laugh,” he described.The two seniors, Susana and Ava, used to work at a bakery near their school. And when the owners learned about the girl’s death, they felt devastated. But after reading the girls’ posts before their death, she took the comfort of it.
Apparently, the 18-year-olds shared Romans 8:18 in their Instagram posts. It reads, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
Comfort in God
In the Humble Crumb bakery’s post, they expressed their grief about losing two gems in their team. But they continue to find hope and comfort in God.
“We have ONE comfort and ONE hope and that is the comfort that comes only from God,” the bakery post wrote. “Ava and Suzy loved Jesus and they knew Jesus as their redeeming Savior. They wanted to serve him with their lives and they were trusting in HIM for their salvation. They are now with HIM in glory and while we suffer their loss, our hearts are also filled with hope.”
As we honor the lives of those who passed away, let’s keep their family and friends who are grieving right now in our prayers.
