United States Missionary pilot Ryan Koher and two South African volunteers – Eric Day and Willem du Plessis – have returned to their home countries after Mozambique authorities released their passports and permitted them to leave the county, says Missions Aviation Fellowship) communications officer Jazz Christie.

The missionaries were arrested as they were preparing to fly essential supplies to an orphanage in northern Mozambique, on November 4  last year. Authorities alleged that the men were cooperating with terrorists in the north of the country. They were held in prison for four months, and then released and required to stay in the country as the case continued.

While Ryan was able to live with his family at their home in Nampula after his release, Eric and Willem had been isolated from their families and were now happy to be reunited with them in South Africa.

Jazz said she was pleased to report that the supplies that were impounded by Mozambican authorities at the time of the missionaries’ arrest are due to be released to the orphanage. She said this was an answer to prayers.
