Prayers Requested Following Heartbreaking Tragedy in Haiti

Condolences offered and prayers sought following the killing of a young AG couple by a gang in Haiti.

On Thursday, May 24, at approximately 9 p.m., Missions in Haiti, Inc. missionaries Davy Lloyd, 23, Natalie Lloyd, 21, and Jude Montis, 45, were ambushed by gang members in Northern Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, while leaving a youth service. Natalie, Davy, and Jude attempted to seek refuge in a house connected to the mission but were discovered by gang members and killed.

Davy, son of David and Alicia Lloyd, grew up as a missionary kid in Haiti. Natalie was a Missouri native and daughter of Missouri State Representative Ben Baker. Davy and Natalie attended Ozark Bible Institute in Neosho, Missouri. The couple, who married in 2022, traveled to Haiti to serve as missionaries with Missions in Haiti, Inc., founded by Davy’s parents.

Montis was a Haitian who worked with Missions in Haiti for over 20 years.

Though the Lloyds were not Assemblies of God missionaries, they are deeply connected through a lineage of Assemblies of God pastors. Davy and Natalie attended Bible Holiness Assembly of God in Neosho, Missouri. Their willingness to be a light for the gospel, and their demonstration of Christ’s love in the lives they impacted will not be forgotten.

“Davy and Natalie saw the face of Christ in every Haitian and chose to serve in a place of great need, where danger was ever-present, driven by a profound love for God and their belief in the unstoppable power of the gospel,” said Timothy Laurito, president of Ozark Bible Institute and College and pastor of Bible Holiness Assembly of God. “Davy and Natalie lived intentionally and poured their lives into making an eternal difference, no matter the temporal cost. Their unwavering faith, boundless love, and steadfast dedication to spreading the gospel have left an indelible mark on our church, college, the nation of Haiti, and the world.”

During this time of tragedy and loss, the Assemblies of God extends its deepest condolences and prayers to the families, friends, and acquaintances of all involved. Join us in praying for the Lloyd, Baker, and Montis families. Pray for the peace of Christ to dwell within them during this time of mourning, that His comfort would overwhelm their hearts. Pray for the fear that may arise because of this senseless attack. Pray that God’s name will be proclaimed throughout Haiti, despite the enemy’s plans. Pray for the gang members who unleashed this violence to come to know the Lord as Savior.

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds,” (Psalm 147:3).
