It has been 38 days since 17 missionaries with Christian Aid Ministries were kidnapped by the 400 Mawozo gang in Haiti.
The organization gave the positive update on their website on Sunday, followed by a second update on Tuesday.
“As we rejoice about the two hostages who were released over the weekend, we continue to pray for the fifteen who are still in captivity. This is the 38th day since the kidnapping took place, “began the mission organization began.
“God has given us much encouragement through the prayers and notes we have received. We, along with the family members of the hostages, treasure this support from believers around the world.”
In October, 17 missionaries, including 16 Americans and 1 Canadian – 5 of those children – along with their Haitian vehicle driver, were kidnapped while leaving an orphanage.
According to AlJazeera, the 400 Mawozo gang demanded $1 million in ransom per person, or they would be killed. The news site is unaware if that included the children.
No information, other than the number of hostages released, has been provided at this time.
Friends, please do not forget to pray for those released, those still in captivity, and for the families of those who have been held captive.
Let us continue to pray for our missionaries around the world, who have followed the calling of the Lord to preach the Gospel to those in other nations.
Their lives are literally on the line.
