Stranded missionaries back home in Oregon

Oregon missionaries, stranded

SANDOVAL COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – A group of teenage missionaries who were on their way home when they got stranded in New Mexico are home safe in Oregon.

Last week, KRQE News 13 reported on the group of missionaries who were driving home after doing missionary work in Mexico.

But on their way back, they became stranded after their bus transmission went out.

Since the eldest member was only 24, the group couldn’t rent a van – but as fate would have it – one of KRQE’s viewers caught wind of the story and decided to lend a helping hand.

The group told KRQE News 13 that after the story aired, local business Brannex Truck Parts & Sales contacted them and offered not only a tow, but fixed the engine at no cost.

The group made it home on Wednesday just in time to graduate Sunday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
