The Henry family has confirmed that Pastor Elie Henry, a regional spiritual leader for the Seventh-day Adventist Church and his daughter have been detained by unknown individuals in Haiti, since the evening of December 24, 2020. The Henry family has been in regular contact with Pastor Elie and understand both he and his daughter are as well as can be expected considering the circumstances.

The Henry family and the Church ask you not to speculate on social media but rather focus your energy on keeping Pastor Henry and his daughter Irma in your prayers during this trying time.
