Missionaries caught in Ugandan explosion; 2 seriously injured

Last Sunday, two explosions in Kampala, Uganda, claimed the lives of 75 people. Among the injured were five missionaries from Christ Community United Methodist Church, in Selinsgrove, Penn.

Two of those injured, Emily Kerstetter, 16, and her grandmother, Joanne, were reported to be in very serious condition.

It is being reported that Emily Kerstetter was transferred to Johannesburg, South Africa, on the order of her parents, in the hope she might receive improved medical attention than what can be provided in Uganda.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to interfaith dialogue concerning global issues.
