"It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you a tragedy that occurred at RVR tonight. Around 7 p.m. our Fort Roller and Arrowhead Woods campers, were gathered for meeting in the Arrowhead Woods pavilion. Our staff noticed a storm that was quickly approaching and immediately began moving the campers from the pavilion to the nearest secure building, Hilltop Hall. The storm came upon them in a very quick and severe manner before all the children reached the building. The intense storm knocked down numerous trees and limbs in a matter of seconds and 9 children were injured. I am sad to say that one of the children died from his injuries. Please pray for all of these children and their families."

II wonder why we are being asked to pray for the children. Any person who has heard the story, and is a praying person, would certainly offer these families up in prayer. Most of us have had a need to pray since we heard about the incident.
