    Fla. Baptist missionaries flee Haiti, describe 'chaotic' scene in final days of uprising

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (BP)--Three days before Jean-Bertrand Aristide stepped down as president of Haiti, as rebels were surrounding the capital city of Port-au-Prince, Florida Baptist missionaries Tom and Annette Harper fled the Caribbean nation Feb. 26 aboard the last American Airlines flight to leave.

    The retired missionaries were in Caberet, a village about 40 miles north of Port-Au-Prince, to oversee final preparations for opening an orphanage sponsored by the Jacksonville Baptist Association. The association already sponsors a church on the property.

    The trip to Port-au-Prince was harrowing as the couple, their driver and bodyguards drove through the countryside where rebels and bandits were located.

    We need to pray for the National Pastors in Haiti, too, who will not be fleeing - and for the Christians who will not be leaving.

    So many need our prayers.
