A church bus transporting children and chaperones home from a Sunday school rally in St. Vincent, an island in the Caribbean, has crashed.
The bus ran off a road and careened several feet down a slope, injuring many of the 23 passengers. Sis Green and Br. Enville Henry, who is a member of the General Board of Administration of the Wesleyan Holiness Church in the Caribbean, are both currently hospitalized. Eleven others suffered broken bones or various injuries. Other buses were part of the caravan, but they did not wreck.
“Let us continue to pray for the injured and their families for whom this incident has been a traumatic experience as well,” said Rev. Joel Cumberbatch, general superintendent of the Caribbean General Conference of The Wesleyan Holiness Church. “The Lord willing on Friday evening, June 5, I will be travelling to St. Vincent for a few days to get a first-hand assessment of the situation and to visit, pray, and counsel with those affected, as well as share in a special Thanksgiving service being organized by the district.”
