Prayers for Phil & Lonnie

Our friends are missionaries to Haiti.     Obviously this is a very difficult time for them as they watch their family,  friends and neighbors experience loss and devastation like never before.    

Last night they experienced another blow and need our prayers.    Phil and Lonnie were trying to bring their grandchildren back into the United States where they could stay in safety.       Phil and Lonnie's grandchildren are Haitian.      When they arrived, immigration would not let them through.     They locked them in a detection room all night.    At 3:00 am, armed guards arrived and took their grandchildren away from them and escorted them to Miami.    They wouldn't tell Phil and Lonnie anything.      All they did was hand them a map and a phone number.       Can you imagine how horrific that was for them and their grandchildren?      Phil and Lonnie are driving to Miami right now and have no idea what faces them when they get there.       They need our prayers desperately.

To get to know Phil and Lonnie and their ministry in Haiti better, visit Haiti's House of Blessing.

Oh my goodness, how horrible :( Please let us know what happens, hoping and praying for the best, and for it to be speedy. I can't imagine the red tape involved, ugh.
