Oregon church hosts birthday celebration for missing 8-year-old
The case of a missing Portland, Ore., boy named Kyron Horman has made national headlines.
The West Main Church of Christ in Medford, Ore., hosted a birthday celebration last week for the boy, who turned 8 on Thursday.
Kyron’s uncle Ryan Davidson is a member of the southern Oregon congregation. Davidson’s sister, Desiree Young, is Kyron’s biological mother.
“We definitely have been lifting it up in prayer for quite a while,” youth minister Brian Pannell told The Christian Chronicle. “This was a chance to show more support. It was a really cool blessing to be able to do that.”
