This story really hits home for me, because Jason William Petrie is the brother of my friend…and former co-worker Ben Petrie. All I have ever heard is how dedicated Jason has been in providing help and relentless compassion to a nation so desperately in need of the slightest glimmer of consistent hope. If anything, I believe he has innocently aligned himself in a situation that is outside of any “ties to criminal gangs.” Twenty years of missionary work= that he did not have to engage in…speaks volumes. I pray for my brother’s brother as this story unfolds.
