Plane Crash in Cameroon

According to the AP, a Kenya Airways flight that went missing shortly after takeoff from Douala, Cameroon, crashed with more than 100 people on board Saturday

"Alex Bayeck, a regional communications officer, said the Nairobi-bound jet went down near the town of Lolodorf, about 155 miles south of the coastal city of Douala, where it had taken off shortly after midnight."

We don't personally know anyone who was supposed to be on that flight, which originated in Cote d'Ivoire, but we are praying for the families of the victims, and are alert for any further news. We are expecting Rev. John Thornburg to arrive in Yaounde on an Air France flight later this evening.
