Less than a week after the abduction, 400 Mawozo issued a video of its leader threatening to kill the hostages if ransom demands are not met. After the video was released, more than 100 people gathered in Hart, Mich., to hold a prayer vigil for the missionaries in Haiti.
On its website, CAM posted:
You may wonder why our workers chose to live in a difficult and dangerous context, despite the apparent risks. Before leaving for Haiti, our workers who are now being held hostage expressed a desire to faithfully serve God in Haiti. One of them said he wants to be of use to bring glory to God, whether at home or abroad. Another shared a desire to use God-given talents to build God’s kingdom while helping those in need. Pray that their commitment to God could become even stronger during this difficult experience.
