other than some short term missions trips, most missionaries go to countries for years at a time. so chances are these missionaries were there long
before the assassination of the President. and to be perfectly honest, if they had tried to book a flight immediately after the president was
assassinated, chances are the would still have been there waiting for that flight. if you don't know it, international travel has been badly screwed
up ever since airlines abandoned their passengers all over the world for months at the start of the pandemic. not to mention they also jacked up
airfare at that time, not sure if they have lowered their prices back to normal yet. so there is even a chance they couldn't afford to go home.
and lets be honest about it, while these things do happen, it is not all that common,and it's not just missionaries
at risk. when for example
was the last time Americans or other foreigners were kidnapped there? not really a common occurrence there. and something that can happen anywhere,
just look at the Canadians China kidnapped as hostages not too long ago. and as for having kids with them, would you want to be away from your
children for years at a time? and just so you know, my parents and at least one other North American escaped an attempt for terrorists to kidnap them
in another country. and a family fried was kidnapped and murdered
by such terrorists. so i rather do know a little about these things.
and lets face it, would they have been any safer in the US? the US also has a lot of political turmoil at the moment, that could spill over into
violence at any time. such as all those politically motivated riots that went on for how many years. or all the people killed by gangs and their
shootings. or mass shootings, random crime and murder, as well as things like home invasions. and of course we can't forget about the 3/4 of a million
people killed by covid in the US in the last year and a half. those are all a lot more common occurrences than being kidnapped by terrorists in
the sad part is that it is the US government, that should be working to free/rescue their citizens (with the help of the Haiti government or not). but
good luck with biden and the democrats in control, we have all seen the lengths they go to, to not rescue Americans, they don't even try to help their
embassy staff, an actual arm of the government. or just look at all those they abandoned in Afghanistan to terrorists.
