Haiti has recently been mired in political instability, widespread gang violence, a presidential assassination, and an increase in kidnappings. Last weekend, 17 American and Canadian children and missionaries with Christian Aid Ministries were kidnapped by a Haitian gang. The gang has demanded a ransom of $1 million USD per person.
Pray for the safety of this group as local and American authorities determine their next steps of action. And pray for Haiti. Many of its citizens are weary of the turmoil and uncertainty in their country. Pray for people to continue to share the gospel with Haitians.
