A day of prayer and fasting will be held on Thursday 28th October 2021, for a group of 17 missionaries and children kidnapped in Haiti.
Christian Aid Ministries is praying for their safe release, as well as for the kidnappers to turn to Christ.
The group is formed of 16 Americans and one Canadian, and includes five children, the youngest of which is just 8 months old.
They were kidnapped near capital Port-au-Prince on their way back from visiting an orphanage supported by Christian Aid ministries.
The gang behind the kidnapping, 400 Mawozo, has demanded 17m dollars for their release.
One father of a hostage shared about the kidnappers, “We are interested in the salvation of these men and we love them.” Another father said, “As a family we are giving forgiveness to these men. We are not holding anything against them.”
