Jubilation As Kidnapped Nurse and Daughter Are Released: El Roi Haiti Christian ministry in Haiti rejoices following the release of the ministry’s kidnapped nurse and daughter.
Two weeks after the New Hampshire nurse Alix Dorsainvil and her daughter were kidnapped in Haiti, the Christian ministry released a statement announcing their safe release.
The organization expressed great joy and gratitude to God after several days of praying through tears for the safe return of the wife and daughter of their founder.
“It is with a heart of gratitude and immense joy that we at El Roi Haiti confirm the safe release of our staff member and friend, Alix Dorsainvil, and her child who were held hostage in Port au Prince, Haiti. Today we are praising God for answered prayer!” read the August 9 statement.
The ministry expressed immense gratitude for all the support received in the course of finding Alix and her daughter. “We are so thankful for everyone who joined us in prayer and supported us during this crisis.”
The ministry which vouched to pray ceaselessly until the victims are released also praises “God that He has proven Himself faithful as He restores, supports, and strengthens Alix and her family, the ministry of El Roi Haiti, and the community that Alix has impacted – and continues to impact – with her ministry in Haiti.”
El Roi Haiti however requested that no one contact Dorsainvil or her family at the moment. “There is still much to process and to heal from in this situation,” the statement said. “So we are asking that no attempts be made to contact Alix or her family at this time”
Alix and her daughter were kidnapped on the morning of July 27. According to witnesses who spoke to The Associated Press, she was tending to patients in a modest brick clinic when armed men invaded the location and abducted her.
Alix has been married to the ministry founder Sandro Dorsainvil since 2021 and has served as a school nurse in the ministry since 2020.
