Russellville church group stuck in Haiti following mission trip

Interviews on Alabama church groups stuck in Haiti

RUSSELLVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A church group in Russellville is waiting to fly home from Haiti.

The group of fourteen people, with Russellville First Baptist Church, arrived in Haiti for a mission trip in late June, but their plans to fly home had issues due to protests.


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.
