An American nurse who was kidnapped in Haiti and released last week says that one worship song in particular had become her “battle cry” after she and her daughter were abducted in late July.
Alix Dorsainvil and her daughter were set free last week after roughly two weeks of being held captive following their July 27 abduction from the campus of the El Roi Haiti Christian education ministry near Port-au-Prince.
El Roi Haiti, which Dorsainvil’s husband founded, came forward on Thursday, reporting that the two were not harmed and are in healthy condition.
“I am completely humbled by the outpouring of support and prayer for myself and my sweet baby both during and following our time in captivity,” Alix Dorsainvil said in a statement on the El Roi Haiti website.
“God was so very present in the fire with us and I pray that when I find the words to tell our story, that the mighty name of Jesus may be glorified and many people will come to know his love. Thank you all from the depths of my heart for your love.”
