Our Love and Prayers are with President Christensen and his Family

I've struggled with whether or not to post this, but feel like it is appropriate to spread the word to members of the ward who may know and love the Christensens, but are not aware of the situation.

Wednesday morning our Stake President's son Bryce, who just got back from his mission a month ago, was killed in a car accident (http://www.heraldextra.com/content/view/295350/).

The Stake Executive Secretary has passed along information for the services.

o Viewing, Sunday, January 11, 2009, 6:00-8:00 p.m., Walker Mortuary
o Viewing, Monday, January 12, 2009, 9:45-10:45 a.m., Relief Society Room, Stake Center
o Funeral, Monday, January 12, 2009, 11:00-12:00 noon, Chapel, Stake Center
o Interment, Monday, January 12, 2009, 12:30-1:00 p.m., Spanish Fork Cemetery

We love President Christensen and his wife. They are wonderful examples of Christlike people who serve willingly. I'd invite all to keep them in your prayers.

Best,
Bishop

I saw an article about the accident yesterday morning (not knowing that it was Pres. Christensen's son) and heard an opening prayer at a meeting last night mention their son's death. It wasn't until I got home last night that I put the two together and understood the real tragedy of it all.

Our prayers go out to Pres. Christensen and his family in this trying time. I am always thankful of our Heavenly Father's plan when I hear of trials and tragedies like this.

My mom told me about this and I hope they can get through this tragedy. Our prayers are with them.
