Adventists Survive Plane Crash on Micronesian
Agana Heights, Guam. Three Seventh-day
Adventist leaders were aboard a Boeing 727
aircraft carrying 96 passengers from Guam to the
island of Yap that crashed on April 2 when its
landing gear failed. Continental Micronesia Flight
951 touched down normally, but then it collapsed
onto the pavement, skidding down the runway, say
"We thank God for His care and protection and for
His work and His workers," said Willy Nobuo,
president of the Adventist Church in the Guam-
Micronesia Mission, and a passenger on the plane.
Guam-Micronesia Mission secretary Remenster Jano
and youth department director Endamo Otong were
also on board.
The crash resulted in no deaths, and reported
injuries were minor, says Wilbur Claus,
spokesperson for the Adventist Church in the
region. [Reporter: Wilbur Claus]
