SDA Pastor and Daughter Kidnapped in Haiti
The president of the Inter-American Division, Pastor Elie Henry and his daughter Irma has been kidnapped. The incident happened on Christmas eve while en route from Haiti Adventist Hospital to a relative’s house in Felmathe, Port au Prince.
Irma Henry is chief of Physical Therapy at Haiti Adventist Hospital. Her parents were on a short holiday visit to Haiti. Irma and her father left the hospital by private vehicle at approximately 6pm last night and never arrived at their expected destination.
This morning Elie’s brother, who is a neurosurgeon in Port au Prince, was contacted by kidnappers who said that they are holding Irma and her father for a ransom of $5 million USD. The family ask for your prayers for this delicate situation. Also reported by Haitbones.org and Adventist Today
