THE 2 KIDNAPPED BOYS HAVE BEEN RESCUED!
Our staff of Manel (Pastor and driver), plus Nilza (our children’s program leader), as well as the sister who abandoned them, and the police were the rescue team who located them at 11a.m. our time today. (late afternoon in Africa)
The boys were unharmed physically and hopefully will recover quickly from the 24 hours they were with this man.
The man fled from the police as soon as he realized our truck was in the village.
Our police don’t have a vehicle, so our ministry provided a truck and driver to take them to the village.
The Sister was the key factor in locating them, and was the first stop for the police since our staff knew where she lived.
The Sister figured out who the man had to be, and she took them to his mud hut in the village of Nacacca.
The parents of these 2 boys are truly deceased (he lied saying he was their father).
He is their father’s older brother (the kid’s uncle whom they didn’t even know).
The boys are safely back in our care as their “uncle” is on the run from the police, who are now trying to find him.
I doubt he will be back now that he is wanted for kidnapping, but we will watch over them by putting a guard at the house to protect them.
THANK YOU for those of you who saw the prayer alert and let us know you were praying.
PRAYER MADE THE DIFFERENCE AND KEPT THE KIDS SAFE.
We are super happy that they are safe and were not sold, as we had feared!
Human trafficking is a problem in the larger cities of Mozambique, but so far, we have had no incidents in our area.
Until they catch this man, we will not know why he took the boys.
