|George Knoop, an elder at Quisqueya Chapel in Delmas, Haiti|
George, a native of the Chicago area, was a warm, deeply spiritual man of prayer who was seventy-four years-old. George worked for a mail-forwarding service that many Haiti missionaries use, Missionary Flights International. He was deeply involved in the discipleship of young men and the teaching and practice of the discipline of prayer. We met George many years ago during his first visit to Haiti. His deep trust in God and his complete dedication to mission left an impression that we will never forget. While George lived life with Christ to the full, we have no doubt that, in the end, he was equally passionate to receive his eternal reward. How we wish that George could have received this reward quietly, surrounded by his friends and family instead of so brutally. Pray for George's family and friends as they grieve and hope. Pray also that his murderer will repent and accept responsibility for his actions.
