I'm posting my Monday post a bit early because it is urgent.
You may have heard of the Americans who were arrested in Haiti on Saturday, accused of child trafficking. Three of them are my cousins (my late aunt's son, son-in-law, and grandson.)
These are men of integrity. I'd trust them with my children. I trust that their sole intention was to bring practical and spiritual help and love to needy children.
My dad has written an excellent blog post explaining the situation more fully; it is here.
I'm not sure exactly what caused such a tremendous misunderstanding. I don't know whose fault it is. But, wherever the confusion lie, I can tell you one thing. This is not a group of people trying to smuggle children.
If you pray, please pray that they are released. They are scheduled to see a judge Monday.
We believe that God has them safe in his hands. We look forward to them being safe with their families again.
