Hart Community 1

Community members gather together in prayer at the Hart Commons park in Hart on Sunday for a prayer vigil. The vigil is for the family from the Dunkard Brethren Church congregation, who were among the missionary group kidnapped by a gang in Haiti and are being held for ransom.

HART — The town of Hart is small – its population just barely reaches over 2,000. Its downtown area stretches about two blocks, and most shops are closed for the weekend by 3 p.m. on Saturday. Little red hearts are etched onto every street sign.

So, when word came that an Oceana County family was kidnapped while on a mission in Haiti, it spread like wildfire through the town.
