The FBI is still working to rescue 17 missionaries kidnapped in Haiti. In the Bay Area, Haitian Americans living in Florida have hope.
Rev. Donnie Saint-Germain of the El Shadai Community Church in Winter Haven was in Haiti last week.
His missionary group is building a house and has delivered more than 3 million meals after the earthquake this summer.
“To help and recover the lost family,” said Donnie Saint-Germain.
Saint-Germain was born in Haiti and has a direct understanding of its need. His missionary group, El Shaddai Ministries International, has sent more than 10,000 missionaries to Haiti, he said.
“There is no job, no opportunity, no hope, but most of the time, violence and gangsters are on the rise, and many have left home,” he said.
He was shocked to learn that a notorious gang kidnapped 17 members of the US-based Christian Aid ministry near Port-au-Prince.
“I know some of the people kidnapped on that mission. It’s a very restricted area where you shouldn’t travel day or night,” said Donnie Saint-Germain.
FBI agents are helping Haitian authorities search for the youngest eight-month-old missing person. According to the Haiti Minister of Justice, the gang demanded them a ransom of $ 17 million.
Saint-Germain fears that these abductions will prevent missionaries from returning to Haiti.
“We need a leader who has a strategic plan on how he will wipe out the gang and make plans, and that will ensure safety,” said Saint-Germain. rice field.
