Somerset church group hijacked on mission trip
Despite being kidnapped, robbed and left for dead in the forests of Guatemala, the short-term mission group from Riverside Church in Somerset said they feel blessed.
"We are just grateful to be alive," said Rev. Bill Hieb, leader of the mission trip and pastor at Riverside Church.
The mission trip was supposed to run Jan. 23- Feb. 4, but it was derailed on the first night, while the group was driving to the place they planned to stay that night.
