Missionary Couple Die In Africa Crash

A Spokane couple doing missionary work in Africa died over the weekend in a plane crash in northwest Zambia, leaving behind two young children. Jay and Katrina Erickson, who attended Hillyard Baptist Church, were killed Saturday when the six-seat Cessna aircraft Jay was piloting crashed into the Zambezi River. Their daughters, 2-year-old Marina and 1-year-old Coral, had stayed behind at the Chitokoloki Mission Hospital where the couple worked. “They were living their dream and doing what they thought the Lord wanted them to do,” Pastor Ron Ulmer of Hillyard Baptist said Monday/Scott Maben, SR.
