By now, you’ve probably heard that we are grieving the loss of our Field Director, Kortney Blythe Gordon, and her pre-born daughter Sophy who were involved in a fatal car accident on Saturday night.
Jon Scharfenberger, Coordinator of our Pregnant on Campus Initiative, was in the car during the accident and is not doing well. Currently, he is in critical condition in a hospital in Georgia, where the accident happened. I flew down to be with him and his family yesterday and will be in Georgia indefinitely to offer prayers for him and support to his family.
We are hosting a webcast at 5:00pm tonight for those who want to pray and offer their words of support for Kortney’s family and of encouragement for Jon. David Bereit of 40 Days for Life, Reverend Pat Mahoney of Christian Defense Coalition, Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, and Claude Allen of Gerard Health Foundation will be on the call to lead us in prayer and discussion to honor the lives of Kortney and her daughter Sophy, and to offer words of encouragement for Jon and his family. We encourage you to join our webcast by clicking here: http://instantteleseminar.com/?eventid=23295666
We will keep you updated with his status as more details are revealed. Please devote a portion of your day today to praying for his recovery and the continued mission of Students for Life.
