“As a movement, we gather around all those impacted by this tragedy, their families, and their communities. We are working to meet all the pressing practical, financial, and emotional needs that arise,” the statement continues.

Among the vehicles involved was one carrying students and teachers from New Vision School of Arusha and a public bus,” according to a report by The Christian Post.

On the YWAM Kona website, it reads that the “Leaders and students involved in the Executive Masters Program were on a field trip with other local YWAMers. One mini-bus was struck and overrun by a large truck with failing brakes”.

“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands…… Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord…… Instead, I say that we are confident and willing to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:1, 6, 8).
