Metro Detroit church group stranded in Haiti after protests – WXYZ.com

Church members from Kensington Church are stranded in Haiti after protest broke out at the capital this week.

Forty-four members went to Haiti as part of a mission trip with Mission of Hope. Clashes broke out at Port-au-Prince after a massive gas hike. Roads are blocked, and some protesters have been burning items in the street. The State Department has warned U.S. citizens to shelter in place and not travel.

“They’re not mad at us,” said Chris Barnett, Orion Township Supervisor and one of the stranded members. “We really do feel safe we are not concerned.”

Barnett said they have been working with about 160 other Americans with Mission of Hope.
