exploding parcel close to home

Update - Tuesday
Here's a link to the CTV news item about the incident from last night (Nov. 10) and a link to the CBC news item also from last night.

******************

It's a little scary when you hear of a package, wrapped to look like a gift and left anonymously on a doorstep, exploding shortly after being picked up - and this in your home town. That's what happened in the Walnut Grove area of Langley Saturday morning.

Imagine our surprise to find out yesterday morning that the man to whom this happened attends our church (CLA) and works for Campus for Christ at SFU.

Saturday was moving day for Gary Stevenson and his family (wife and two little girls). Gary picked up a tissue paper parcel that mysteriously appeared at his front door and got as far as the garage when it exploded. He was badly injured in the blast, with shrapnel puncturing his body. He is under guard in hospital. (You might want to pray.)

As to why this happened - no one knows. Of course the police are investigating.

Sorry to hear that.
I was involved in Campus Crusade years ago. It give good support to many college students. Hope he has a full recovery and is not attacked again.
