    2011 Victories: Rescued American Christian Missionary from Jail


    This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at a few of the hundreds of victories by the ACLJ in 2011. After working with orphans in the ravaged nation of Haiti for eight years, American Christian missionary Danny Pye was detained and falsely imprisoned without explanation or any formal charge against him. For over five months, Danny sat in the inhumane conditions of prison in a third world country – apart from his pregnant wife and young child. Danny’s wife an... Continue Reading

    Missionary Daniel Pye has called Haiti home for eight years, running an orphanage and distributing necessities the Haitian people desperately needed well before the earthquake of January 2010.

Without explanation or any formal charges filed, authorities took him into custody after the hearing and he has been jailed since. Danny's wife, Leann - who is pregnant - says she immediately began working to get her husband released, but ran into numerous problems along the way. It's been an emotional rollercoaster for the family. Danny was scheduled to be released from jail on Christmas Eve. A second judge determined that Danny had been illegally detained and signed orders for his release, but before Danny could leave the jail, the judge who initially put him in... Continue Reading
