Anderson University will collect funds to directly support the Kurrle family (Church of God missionaries in Paraguay). Yesterday morning, Julie (Beam) Kurrle and son Timmy Kurrle were killed in a car accident in Paraguay. Julie graduated in 1998 from AU and in 2002 from the School of Theology. Julie's husband, Norberto, graduated from AU in 1997 and from the School of Theology in 2002. Alumni and friends wishing to financially help the Kurrle family may use the following link to make a gift (gifts are not eligible for taxable deduction). All funds received will be directed to the family. (Please click the "Kurrle Family Support" link at the bottom-right of the page.)

kurrleThe Kurrles have been missionaries to Paraguay with Church of God Global Missions since 2002. Norberto has worked with a Christian radio station and in discipleship programs in the city of Obligado, where they lived. Julie initiated, developed, and directed the Children of Promise sponsorship program in Paraguay from 2004 to 2010. Her heart for the children of Paraguay compelled her to work tirelessly on behalf of those in need. She was affectionately and respectfully loved by the sponsored children and their families. Julie was instrumental in selecting and training the present director of the sponsorship program for Children of Promise.

Please join Anderson University as we continue to pray for Norberto and daughter Anahi Kurrle, their family, and the church in Paraguay.
