Missionary Ordered Released, But Silsby Left In Haitian Jail to Wonder
March 6, 2010  | http://bit.ly/anOAn2


(ChattahBox)—A Haitian judge ordered the release of one of the two remaining
Baptist missionaries, charged with kidnapping and criminal association, from a
Haitian jail on Friday. Charisa Coulter, 24, a member of an Idaho Baptist
church, has been jailed since January when she was arrested along with nine
other evangelicals trying to cross the border into the Dominican Republic with
33 Haitian children, without proper documentation. Last month, eight of the
charged missionaries were allowed to leave Haiti without bond, but may have to
return as the kidnapping investigation continues. The group’s leader, Laura
Silsby will remain in a Haitian jail cell, until authorities can document her
activities during prior trips made to Haiti, as she prepared her plans to
“gather 100 orphans” off of the streets of the quake-ravaged country.

Coulter, who works as Silsby’s nanny, will have to remain in the jail cell in
the capital of Port-au-Prince until Monday, because court administrators
misplaced the official stamp needed to validate judge Bernard Sainvil’s
order. “I already signed the release order. All that is left now is to seal
it but they cannot find the official stamp,” said Sainvil.

The case of the ten Baptist missionaries scooping up Haitian children, many of
whom weren’t even orphans, raised the issue of child trafficking in disaster
prone third-world countries. And the case also shined a light on evangelicals
proselytizing in a (Vodun) ... country, under the guise of charity. Silsby and
her group promised many of the parents of the impoverished children that their
children would be schooled and properly fed. Silsby also promoted the fact that
her New Life Refuge orphanage; located in a 45-room seaside hotel in Cabarete,
Dominican Republic, had a swimming pool.

    “The ten evangelicals, eight of whom are from two Idaho Southern Baptist
churches
, claimed that they were rescuing the children, many who weren’t even
orphans, in the name of Jesus. Laura Silsby, the leader of the group claimed,
“We have been sent by the Lord to rescue these children, and if it’s in the
Lord’s plan we will be successful.”

Once Coulter is released on Monday, Laura Silsby, 40, owner of a failed online
personal shopping site, who left Idaho for Haiti with numerous civil lawsuits
pending against her, will be left alone in the cramped jail cell in
Port-au-Prince, to wonder how her ambitious plans to kidnap Haitian children
for Jesus all went wrong.

saying, 'I am not an orphan. I still have my parents.' She thought she was
going on a summer camp or a boarding school or something like that."
