Missionary Ordered Released, But Silsby Left In Haitian Jail to WonderMarch 6, 2010 | http://bit.ly/anOAn2 ****************************************************Missionary Ordered Released, But Silsby Left In Haitian Jail to WonderMarch 6, 2010 | http://bit.ly/anOAn2 (ChattahBox)—A Haitian judge ordered the release of one of the two remainingBaptist missionaries, charged with kidnapping and criminal association, from aHaitian jail on Friday. Charisa Coulter, 24, a member of an Idaho Baptistchurch, has been jailed since January when she was arrested along with nineother evangelicals trying to cross the border into the Dominican Republic with33 Haitian children, without proper documentation. Last month, eight of thecharged missionaries were allowed to leave Haiti without bond, but may have toreturn as the kidnapping investigation continues. The group’s leader, LauraSilsby will remain in a Haitian jail cell, until authorities can document heractivities 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 inthe capital of Port-au-Prince until Monday, because court administratorsmisplaced the official stamp needed to validate judge Bernard Sainvil’sorder. “I already signed the release order. All that is left now is to sealit but they cannot find the official stamp,” said Sainvil.The case of the ten Baptist missionaries scooping up Haitian children, many ofwhom weren’t even orphans, raised the issue of child trafficking in disasterprone third-world countries. And the case also shined a light on evangelicalsproselytizing in a (Vodun) ... country, under the guise of charity. Silsby andher group promised many of the parents of the impoverished children that theirchildren would be schooled and properly fed. Silsby also promoted the fact thather 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 Baptistchurches, claimed that they were rescuing the children, many who weren’t evenorphans, 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 theLord’s plan we will be successful.”Once Coulter is released on Monday, Laura Silsby, 40, owner of a failed onlinepersonal shopping site, who left Idaho for Haiti with numerous civil lawsuitspending against her, will be left alone in the cramped jail cell inPort-au-Prince, to wonder how her ambitious plans to kidnap Haitian childrenfor Jesus all went wrong.***Trafficked children found in bad statehttp://bit.ly/aCfHrL***Haiti kidnapped victim's Appeal: "One (8-year-old) girl was crying, andsaying, 'I am not an orphan.
