Christian Aid Ministries details how hostages escaped captors in Haiti

The hostages escaped! After nearly two months being held hostage in Haiti, members from the Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries found their freedom by escaping their captors in the darkness of night.

“After discussing their plans, the group felt they should escape on the night of Wednesday, Dec. 15,” spokesman Weston Showalter announced during a Monday morning press conference. “They made plans as they could, but ultimately placed their situation in God’s hands, depending on him for protection and guidance.”

It was the first time officials with Christian Aid Ministries were able to provide in-depth details about the situation — and there was a lot of new information (which you can see in a breakdown at the bottom of this story).

Full story with in-depth details about what the hostages say they experienced along with more information on their escape:

    I’m happy that God did it without the help of a human government.
    So, the world can see and believe!!

  8. Bless YAH on April 15, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    There is a perfect description of the Christmas tree, termed by the Eternal as "the way of the heathen — the customs of the people." We are commanded not to learn that way or follow it! It is also viewed in this passage as idolatry. AMIGHTYWIND

    Guess they were tired of waiting on the US government to rescue them and decided to make a break for it. Thanks Joe, well done.

    Thank you for sharing this amazing story of God’s Love and faithfulness.

  15. Charlie L on April 15, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    And scene! Waiting for season two. This tale is as believable as when your boss Hilary was running from sniper fire with her daughter. How many bible stories did you merge to create this saga. One day you will learn that Ayiti is sacred land and you will be judged. Just leave Ayiti alone.

  16. Jean Manns on April 15, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    God is still in the affairs of his own..Wonderful testimony of these workers of the LORD!

    To God be the glory!

  18. You're Not My Supervisor on April 15, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Shouldn’t have been there..GOD APPROVED SLAVERY..why would GOD tell them to escape? Devil SHYT

  19. Jean Manns on April 15, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    God allowed them to be taken and he rescued them when his time was right!

  20. Charnie Monexe on April 15, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    They were released. They didn’t escape. And A ransom was paid.

  21. South Beach Miami Art on April 15, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    A hostage admitted there was a ransom paid. Donated money ended up in the kidnappers’ pockets. Their tax exemption should be taken away. Isn’t it a crime to use tax free money to support foreign terrorism? Money set these ignorant people free.

    WHAT THE CHURCHES DO NOT TEACH: In Saint John 3:13, the Catholic Bible says: ««No one has ascended into heaven, except he who came down from heaven, the Son of man who is in heaven»» Here, ««the Son of Man»» is Jesus Christ. Pay attention that here, the Catholic Bible says that only Jesus Christ has ascended to heaven; and in Saint John 5:17 of the Bible, CHRIST DECLARES HIMSELF TO BE A SON OF GOD. So, the other children of God who have already left are out of Heaven; and until they are resurrected in the way that Christ was resurrected, they will not enter Heaven. Also, in the present time, they cannot do good works according to God’s criteria, because they have not ascended to Heaven. Furthermore, Paradise, where the souls of God’s children are, is like a womb of heaven, where souls are alive in the style of human fetuses in the wombs of pregnant women. A fetus is alive but inactive; thus are the souls in Paradise. Our Heavenly Father has millions upon millions of angels available to do works based on His eternal goodness (see Revelation 5:11).

    All the people who have already died and their souls are with God, He has them in Paradise; And just when Christ returns, God will resurrect those souls and give them to Christ. They will be resurrected by God, just as God resurrected Jesus three days after his death. Why are they in Paradise? We see that only Jesus Christ has ascended to Heaven, as declared by Saint John 3:13; and in Saint Luke 23:43 in the Bible, Jesus said to one of those crucified together with Him: ««Truly I tell you: today you will be with me in Paradise»» Jesus promised this to him (Jesus also went through the Paradise, like the other children of God). The soul of this man is in Paradise, and it will be there until the moment when Christ returns to this earth. The same happens to all the children of God who achieve spiritual salvation and die before Christ return to this Earth. To enter Heaven, the souls of the children of God must first be resurrected in the way that Christ was resurrected.

    The Virgin Mary is also in Paradise because the Bible teaches saying: ««In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead ones will be raised incorruptible, and we [the living ones] will be transformed»» (in 1 Corinthians 15:52, in the Bible). Also, 1 Thessalonians 4:16, In the Bible he tells us: ««For the Lord, himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first»» Here it clearly says that the dead in Christ will be raised before they enter heaven. Jesus ascended to Heaven after being resurrected, but the Bible does not say that Mary was already resurrected by God; besides, the Bible says that only Jesus Christ has ascended to heaven.

    The souls of the dead ones that are with God, until they are resurrected in the way that Christ rose, will be inactive. There are many people who were murdered, and nobody knows who killed them. Some of those murdered people, their souls are in Paradise because while living in this world, they fulfilled God’s commands through Jesus Christ. The souls of these people, until they are resurrected in the way Christ did, will not be able to inform their relatives or the earthly authorities who the murderers were who killed them. That is why many crimes in the world are unsolved. The souls of a slain person cannot report his/her own death!

    Not only the murdered people who died in Christ and whose souls are in Paradise, cannot give reports about their deaths; neither the other souls of the sons of God who are in Paradise cannot give reports about themselves, nor cannot answer the prayers that people send them to them; including Maria. The laws of God in paradise apply to all souls. Can a 6-year-old girl who is killed in a car accident tell a living relative what the accident was like? NO!! She cannot! The soul of that girl is in Paradise, but she cannot communicate with a family member who is still living and tell him what happened.

    The Bible teaches us that God does not show favoritism (in Acts 10:34). In other words, God does not give a person privilege based on their social rank or blood lapses in this world. That’s why our Savior Jesus was born as if He was plagued by extreme poverty. He was born in a stable, and the animals that were there were the first to welcome the baby Jesus. God will give privileges (in the future) according to the person’s obedience to God. These privileges will be manifest when Christ returns. So, we must accept, that God has not given privileges out of time to the Virgin Mary. After Christ returns, Mary will be exalted according to God’s will. We are called to give all honor and all spiritual credit only to God. In the spiritual, we must approach God only, in FAITH to Him and in obedience to Him; and through Jesus Christ, who is the one who unites us with God.

    Satan’s demons are those who maliciously and deceptively answer the prayers addressed to virgins and saints, and they answer them to keep those who are deceived by them deceived. Satan and his demons even perform miracles to deceive people. Thus, those who are deceived become the properties of Satan. Those who are deceived by demons, when they die, the demons themselves will take their souls to hell. Because the angels of God will not assist them because they have placed their trust in demons; and in the process, while living in this world, they did not obey God as He commands us; nor did they repent of having depended on demons; and due to other sins.

    Every person who dies and angels take their soul to paradise, that soul until it is resurrected will be waiting for the return of Christ. Saint Matthew 28: 1-6 in the Bible says that Jesus Christ was resurrected by God, after being three days dead in a tomb. Christ is not waiting in Paradise, because he has already been resurrected by God. Jesus Christ has joined the Father God reigning as ««KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS»» (It is said by Revelation19:16, in the Bible). But if we pray, ask, or speak with Mary the mother of Jesus, we are doing it for the future (for after she is spiritually resurrected), and getting in touch with Mary in this way is something that displeases God. Mary is a model of obedience to God; and we must obey God in the style of Mary because this is something that pleases God (see Matthew 3:17, in the Bible). She will be resurrected by God precisely when Christ returns to earth again because that will be when God will resurrect all his children who are in Paradise. The Bible does not say that Mary was already resurrected by God. That is why it is necessary to leave Maria alone, and only obey God the way she did while she was alive on Earth. Just as Mary obeyed God, we too must obey the Father God.

    The Bible only mentions a single virgin, which is Mary. After God resurrects Mary, then we must expect that she will manifest herself as the most outstanding, the most sublime, the most honorable, and the most exalted woman among the women who lived in this world; and we must expect that what Luke 1:42 in the Bible says about her will be fulfilled: ««Blessed are you among women»» This means that Mary’s blessings will be greater than those of many other women. The greatness of Christ was manifested after God raised him from death, and the same is going to happen to Maria; that her greatness will be manifested after God resurrects her.

    The churches have not been teaching the truths of God correctly, and many truths of God people do not really know correctly. Perhaps that is why Jesus Christ, in Saint Matthew 7:14 (in the Bible) says: ««Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life [with God], and only a few find it»» FEW SOULS of the ones who die are going to the Kingdom of God. Because if Jesus Christ says that this is so, it is because it is so. Because of this, when someone dies, the possibility of his/her soul reaching eternal life with God is very low. Why is it so low? Due to great disobedience to God form our part.

    The beautiful thing is that God commands us saying: ««CALL ME AND I WILL ANSWER YOU ……»» (in Jeremiah 33: 3, in the Catholic Bible). This is an order from God that we must respect and fulfill. Also, isn’t God the most boss anywhere in creation and outside of it? It always makes more sense to cry out or ask the boss! (Mostly when He is willing to help). We must ask for help or invoke God alone (in the Name of Jesus Christ)! Because this is also an order of Jesus Christ found in John 14:13-14 in the Bible.

    God does not contradict himself. If God has ordered us to cry out to Him and He will respond (in Jeremiah 33: 3 in the Bible), then God will not accept that we seek help in "saints", in "virgins", (in this and in that), etc., etc. In the entire Bible, we are only told to depend on God alone for spiritual matters. Even Jesus himself says so (in John 14:13,14 in the Bible). We must understand that God’s affairs are not the way the church you belong to wants them to be, or how your church has taught how she wants them to be. God’s affairs are as He presents them to us in the Bible. May God richly bless you.
