When we travel overseas, we always seem to believe that everything is safe, sound and good. But that’s until we find out that it’s not. A pastor was with a group of travelers in Egypt, only to find that the trip wasn’t going to go as planned. Michel Louis has been kidnapped by a group in Egypt that is using his kidnapping to negotiate the release of some of their relatives who are in the possession of Egyptian authorities. The government is working to secure the pastors’ freedom, and the kidnapping is a wake up call for African Americans seeking to travel overseas.

A Boston pastor was kidnapped this weekend during a trip to Egypt. The family of Rev. Michel Louis is begging the captors of the 61-year old clergyman to let him go after he was taken during a trip to the Holy Land. Pastor Louis was seeking to walk in the footsteps of Jesus when the incident took place.
In addition to Pastor Louis, a 39-year old woman from the Boston area was also taken, along with a tour guide. The events occurred when an Egyptian Bedouin stopped their bus on a road between Cairo and Mount Sinai.
