According to a Baptist Press release, 16 year old Jennifer Cody attended a youth camp in July 1987, sponsored by the Southern Baptists. She had missed the registration deadline at The Church on Mill in Tempe, Arizona, where she attended, but a boy canceled his and that made it possible for her to attend. She not only went to the camp, late one evening she asked Jesus Christ to come into her life as Lord and Savior. After returning home from camp, she went to Michigan to visit relatives. Then, with her mother, Susie, she boarded Northwest Airlines Flight 255 on the evening of August 16, bound for Phoenix and home. You know that story: the second worst airline accident in American history - with only one survivor, a little girl [not Jennifer]. [Plane lost power on takeoff, crashed into highway embankment.] Thank God, Jennifer had gotten saved barely a month before. And thank God for Christian camps.
