According to reports, the two men were both on their way back from checking in on a house the group had been building for a local in-need family when they were attacked. So far, no one has been arrested, but the area is known for having high rates of violent crime. In a statement on Facebook, the group said,
TEAMS for Medical Missions remains committed to serving the people of Jamaica and demonstrating the unconditional love of Christ. Our T4MM family is grieving and we covet your prayers. We serve an amazing God who is able to bring beauty from ashes and it is in Him that we put our trust.
