On Sunday, Christian Aid Ministries announced the release of 3 more Haitian missionaries, who were kidnapped by the 400 Mawozo gang in October.
The organization shared the good news on their website, and also asked for intercession by the church.
We are thankful to God that three more hostages were released last night. Those who were released are safe and seem to be in good spirits. As with the previous release, we are not able to provide the names of the people released, the circumstances of the release, or any other details.
As announced on Friday, we would like to focus the next three days on praying and fasting for the hostages. Please continue to intercede for those who are still being held as well as those who have been released. We long for all the hostages to be reunited with their loved ones. Thank you for your prayer support.
Prior to the release of these 3 missionaries, 2 were released on November 21.
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.
