    Kelsey Orndorff was killed in an automobile accident on Friday evening as she was driving to a Christian concert. The daughter of Rev. James and Lee Anne Orndorff. They pastor the United Methodist Church in Culpeper, Virginia.

    I knew Kelsey and her brother Josh well. They attended the Christian school where I taught high school subjects. She was a dear, sweet girl. Her dad was so proud of her, in that she was scheduled to preach the Sunday morning sermon, her first, yesterday.

    Kelsey was just starting her senior year. She was a straight-A student since the ninth grade and a member of the National Honor Society, the National Forensics League, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Interact Club. She was co-president of the Culpeper United Methodist Church Youth Group; served on nine different mission teams; was a founding member of the praise band, Satellite 29; volunteered at the Culpeper Free Clinic; and performed in school dramas and plays.

    The world's loss is heaven's gain. Please pray.

    Even tho I did not know this young lady while reading this story tears welled up in my eyes knowing and feeling the loss of such a wonderful and dynamic young lady to this world.

    Prayers do not seem enough to help the family and friends grieve of such a great loss but are sent all the same.

    Heaven has gained a mighty angel.

    And so we shall.


    Tragic loss. Praying for all friends and family as I am sure she was well blessed with close friends her age too, that may not know the Lord and have that to fall back on like her parents surely do. No parent should EVER have to bury their child...it just ain't right.

    At our house for the family. They always say things happen for a reason even though we don't understand them. Only the man upstairs knows why. Hate hearing of a child that young being killed.:sad2: Another Angel has gone home to a better place.

    Prayers sent for all involved. It is tragic change when we lose a youth in the neighborhood. Especially one who is known for her good deeds.

    I pray that you welcome her with open arms Lord...
