The remains of missionary couple, Natalie and Davy Lloyd, have returned to the U.S.

The couple was viciously murdered by gang members in Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince. The pair was spending time ministering with a youth group at a local church prior to their death.

Natalie Lloyd’s father, Ben Baker who is also a Missouri state representative, took to Facebook to thank his community during this time of hardship.

“The outpouring of love and support is just overwhelming. Here are just a few pictures from the welcome Davy and Natalie received when they finally made it back to Neosho today. Hundreds of people that were standing out by their cars and many with their hands over their heart in love. A true hero’s reception. God bless you all…words really aren’t sufficient to express our appreciation.”

Baker has also shared the funeral arrangements for the couple. The visitation is today, Monday, from 3-7 p.m. and the funeral will be tomorrow, Tuesday, at 10 a.m. For anyone who is unable to attend, the family will be livestreaming the service.

The heartbroken community has also taken to GoFundMe where over thousands of dollars have since been raised to support their families.

“Please pray for the MO State Representative Ben Baker, wife Naomi Baker, and their family, as well as the Lloyd family. Their children, Natalie and Davy Lloyd were serving as missionaries in Haiti and were killed by gangs,” the GoFundMe page reads.
