Alliance Academy International Teacher Killed in Car Crash

Ana Porras de Ladines, a teacher at Alliance Academy International in Ecuador, was killed in a head-on collision on February 13 along with her husband Emilio and their seven-year-old son Asaf. A dump truck rammed into their vehicle after crossing the opposite lane.

Alejandra, the nine-year-old daughter of Ana and Emilio, survived with minor injuries. She is with her grandparents in Guayaquil. The couple had been serving as international workers prior to returning home to Ecuador and was preparing to begin a new term of missionary service this summer.
