Louis’ son, Rev. Jean Louis, said his father was making his annual mission trip to the Holy Land. “He’s been doing it for the past four years now, and this just turned out to be a little different from any other year,” said the younger Louis, who works as a youth pastor at a church founded by his father. “He’s a diabetic, so we’d like the person that, or the people that have him in captivity, to know that. We’re just concerned for his health. But we know that the governments are working very hard negotiating.”
