It is with deep sorrow that Church of God Global Missions shares with you the news of a tragic accident involving the Kurrle family, missionaries to Paraguay. Julie Kurrle, missionary, along with their son, Timmy, were killed in an automobile accident in Encarnación, Paraguay, at 5:10 a.m April 14, 2012. Norberto and their daughter survived the accident. Anahí, the young daughter, is presently hospitalized.
The Kurrles have been missionaries to Paraguay with Global Missions since 2002.Norberto has worked with a Christian radio station and in discipleship programs in the city of Obligado where they lived. Julie initiated, developed, and directed the Children of Promise sponsorship program in Paraguay from 2004 2010. Her heart for the children of Paraguay compelled her to work tirelessly on behalf of those in need. She was affectionately and respectfully loved by the sponsored children and their families. She was greatly loved by the congregations in which she worked. Julie was instrumental in selecting and training the present director of the sponsorship program for Children of Promise. Julie was an ordained minister in the Church of God.
Please join us in prayer for Norberto, Anahí, and the extended families, as well as the Church of God in Paraguay and the children and families of Children of Promise in Paraguay. The Church of God has lost an outstanding church stateswoman, pastor, and missionary, as well as a vibrant young boy.
