Bus Accident in Brazil Claims Life of Young Latter-day Saint Missionary

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Sam Penrod, spokesman with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, released this statement to media on Saturday, May 27, 2023.

A tragic traffic accident in Brazil has claimed the life of a young missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Elder Izaak Orion Card, 20, of Anchorage, Alaska, died in the accident on Friday, May 26, 2023, in a rural area near the city of Tibagi, Brazil. Four missionaries were traveling on a bus in the early evening, when it was hit by a semitruck. The other missionaries did not sustain serious injury and are being cared for by local members of the Church. Elder Card has been serving as a full-time missionary since October 2022.

We send our love to Elder Card’s family and friends and the missionaries and members in the Brazil Curitiba Mission. We pray that each will find peace and comfort as they mourn this faithful missionary and reflect on his Christlike service.
