For the Joy of Japan

Jamison and Kathryne Pals were preparing to be missionaries in Japan. They, and their three young children (Ezra, Violet and Calvin), were on their way to a WorldVenture missionary training conference when their vehicle was hit by a semi truck. All five were killed in the accident.  Here is one (of many) links to more details on the accident:

In honor of the family that we have lost, we are raising funds to support Jamison and Kathryne's passion so that others would have life in Christ. Eventually the funds raised here will be transferred to the Jamison and Kathryne Pals Family Foundation, which is now set up (see: The foundation will make decisions on which organizations and/or people to financially support based on their impact to reach people for Christ (criteria will be worked on, however, at this time we are focusing our efforts on mourning this significant loss to our families and making funeral arrangements.) 

Donations made out to Jamison and Kathryne Pals Family Foundation may be dropped off or mailed to the Foursome (3570 Vicksburg Lane N, Plymouth, MN 55447.)  This foundation is a 501C3 non profit and donations will be tax deductible.
