A Prayer, Please

Yesterday, we received a phone call that Luke Gullberg, my husband’s cousin’s son, had gone hiking on Mt. Hood and hadn’t returned to the ranger station. He had been missing for over 24 hours and the Search and Rescue Team had been called off for the night due to poor conditions.

Luke is an experienced climber and knows Mt. Hood well. In fact, the ranger even recognized him as he set out with his two friends to make a technical ascent.

Later that day, we learned that Luke’s body had been found. The other two hikers are still missing.

Please pray for Luke’s family and also for the other two hikers to be found, alive.

I’ll keep you updated as I learn more. This link is the most recent update.

    Oh Suzanne, I'm so sorry. I pray that God will comfort your husband's extended family and that the other two climbers will soon be found.
