2 Kidnapped Members of Christian Aid Ministries Freed

Two of the 17 members of Christian Aid Ministries (CAM) who were kidnapped more than a month ago in Haiti have been released, Ohio-based Christian organisation reports. Out of that number, 16 are Americans while 1 is a Canadian.

 In a statement this week, CAM reported that the two freed missionaries are “in good spirits and being cared for.’’ However, they did not disclose where they are being cared for, their names, and the process which led to their release.

Below is the statement:

‘’We have learned that two of the hostages in Haiti were released. We praise God for this! Only limited information can be provided, but we are able to report that the two hostages who were released are safe, in good spirits, and being cared for.

‘’We cannot provide or confirm the names of those released, the reasons for their release, where they are from, or their current location. We ask that those who have more specific information about the release and the individuals involved would safeguard that information.

‘’We encourage you to continue to pray for the full resolution of this situation. While we rejoice at this release, our hearts are with the fifteen people who are still being held. Continue to lift up the remaining hostages before the Lord.

“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable” (Psalm 145:3).’’

Altogether, the missionaries who were kidnapped by the 400 Mawozo gang on October 16 include six men, six women and five children. The kidnappers are demanding $1m for each of their victims. So far, the kidnappers have been threatening to kill the missionaries if the $17m ransom for all of them is not provided.

 “We encourage you to continue to pray for the full resolution of this situation,” CAM said.
