I can only imagine some of the abuse they were put through.

That’s good to hear. Makes you wonder where our State Department had been all this time. You have Bill Clinton there, the Husband of the Secretary of State, and did he lobby for these people? And what about Jessie Jackson and his history of jumping on these humanitarian missions. He was also AWOL also.

Some “missionaries will be allowed to return to the United States, but will need to return if necessary ...”

Guess they are letting a few loose to come home and try to raise $$$ to pay off the corrupt Haitian government. Seems every good deed will not go unpunished down there. Ya gotta hand it to the Baptists, even with this treatment they are still sending people to help. God Bless them.

Praise God! They were only acting in the best interest of the children, even though they didn’t get permission first.
