Americans Back Home After Jail Time in Haiti

It was a long-awaited homecoming for some of the missionaries arrested in Haiti.

Nearly 200 people greeted the returning team members with cheers and hymns as they arrived at the airport in Boise, Idaho.

"We're all very happy to be home. We're very grateful for all of your prayers your all of your support," one of the female missionaries told reporters. "We're still very overwhelmed, but we felt everyone's prayers. Our God is a mighty God, and He stood with us every second we were there, and He brought us home."

"I want you to continue to pray for Charisa and Laura because He's going to bring them home too," she said.

Group leader Laura Silsby and Charisa Coulter are still being questioned by a judge in Haiti for trying to take 33 Haitian children to the Dominican Republic without adoption certificates.

The two said they believe God will reveal truth through the Haitian justice system.
