Senn Family Travel Costs

Update:

We would like to thank each and every one of you for your gifts and notes of encouragement for our family in this time of grief. You all have been a tremendous encouragement and you have comforted us. We want you all to know that the financial gifts have not only covered all the national and international plane tickets, but that there was even a surplus which is being transferred to Naomi. May God bless you all richly!

- Rodolfo and Beatrice for the entire Senn family 

Recently the Senn family lost their son and brother, Diego, in a single engine plane accident. He was a flight instructor at Moody Aviation training future missionary pilots. The family is working their way from South America to Spokane, WA to be with Diego's wife, Naomi, and their four children, one of which is due to arrive in December of this year. Several people have asked how they can tangibly help the family during this time of loss and how to contribute to the costs of very expensive last minute international travel.  The financial “goal” given here is only an expense estimate as the total costs could actually be much more. This account is specifically designed to help ease the burden of airline tickets and other travel-related costs for Diego's parents, siblings, and their families.

The Senn family is now in the States and beginning to finalize details for travel during their stay and when to return to South American. There will be a second memorial service held for Diego in Michigan and the family will fly from Spokane, WA to Detroit, MI to attend both services. Also, the family has postponed their original return date and will be flying out of Detroit instead of Spokane as originally thought adding to the previous goal amount. 

Please note that a separate account is currently being set up specifically to benefit Naomi and her family during this time of need.  Any funds that are raised above and beyond travel expenses with this campaign will be directed to Naomi and her family for their benefit as well.

*Special Note:
If you are unable to contribute through this method but would like to use another form of payment (bank transfer, check, Brazilian currency or other) towards the travel costs for the Senns, please feel free to contact Kelly “Davi” Smith at kelly_smith@sil.org or WhatsApp +14233841276.

Jeffrey Roszhart, Diego's brother-in-law, will be handling all the funds raised by this campaign.
