UPDATE: 9/16/13 1:00pm – We have received word that, of the patients who were transported to Lee Memorial Hospital, three have improved to fair condition. One remains in critical condition but is said to be improving.

Our hearts at Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists continue to be saddened from the news of two additional deaths as a result of the van accident that occurred yesterday.

Osee Elian, 22, and Gertha Petit-Frere, 62, died this afternoon from injuries sustained after the Maranatha French Church van crashed while transporting a group of church members from Lauderhill to Tampa for a Haitian Convention.

We continue our prayers for the families of the three victims who died and pray for God’s healing on those still recovering from the accident.

If you have any questions, you may direct them to Henoc Paulicin who is serving as spokesperson for the church and conference through this tragedy. In the mean time, we solicit your prayers on behalf of the families during this time of pain, and for the entire conference family.

Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists is a mainstream Protestant denomination with more than 61,500 members. We are Bible-believing Christians who base our faith, hope, and future in Jesus Christ.
