MAPLE VALLEY, Wash.– A Maple Valley pastor and missionary were killed in an accident on Monday, according to Generational Hope Christian Center’s Facebook page.

“We are sad and broken to announce that Pastor Ed Pohlreich, our missionary Pastor Scott Volz and Pastor Steve Kaweesa were killed in an accident in Uganda. We are all in shock. We ask that you pray for all of the families involved. We will update you as to how you can help, but for now please pray. May they rest in the Lord’s arms,” the church wrote.

According to a GoFundMe site, the men and their families lived a life full of serving others and pouring their lives and resources into what they felt God had called them to do.
