The protests have begun to wind down, however issues with the airport have continued to keep the group in Haiti. 

Members of the church have continued praying for the group's safe return. 

An update from the church on their Facebook page on Sunday says that the team is booked for a flight on Tuesday, but that there are reports that the protests will continue. The group remains hopeful that they will be able to make it to the airport as scheduled. 

We will continue to update this story with more information as we receive it.
