WEST HILLS (CBSLA.com) — West Valley Christian School confirmed that two teens killed in an airline crash landing in San Francisco were headed to the church’s summer camp.

In a statement posted on the school’s website, the group says a prayer vigil will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday “to remember the two precious girls who died from our group of 35.”

The teens were part of that group of 35 who were expected to arrive on Tuesday for the three-week study aboard program.

“We invite you to a prayer vigil Thursday 7 p.m. at West Valley Christian Church and School. Host families, former host families, and families from the community are welcome,” the school added.

The Chinese government says a total of 70 middle and high school students were aboard Asiana Flight 214.

The school’s administrator says the church located in the San Fernando Valley invites international students for three weeks and offers participants an opportunity to study language arts and culture as well as sightsee, KNX 1070 Newsradio reported.

The Boeing 777 was carrying 291 passengers and 16 crew members when it crashed at San Francisco International Airport late Saturday morning.

At last word, 182 others were hospitalized, according to CBS SF. All 307 people aboard the flight have been accounted for.

The National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) is expected to investigate.

If you thought my intent was to weigh value of their lives, then you are mistaken.
