A Death in Honduras

Karla & Marc
This morning I awoke to terrible news from Honduras.

I never met Karla Sandoval, but I saw her many times in Facebook photos. For a few years now I’ve followed the work of MarcTerri Tindall in Honduras, and in their photos and those of others who have gone on mission trips there I have often seen this girl. A couple of years ago her mother died of AIDS, and when no place could be found with her natural family, she went to live with the Tindalls. She was said to be a bright, energetic child. I was saddened to learn that yesterday she passed away at age 13 from what is believed to have been meningitis.

I’m very sorry that the world has lost her, and grateful to the Tindalls for having given her a loving home for the time they were able.


Update: 
Terri Tindall’s account of Karla’s passing.
