    There is a Haitian church in Norcross run by Pastor Seneque Saintil.
    I think he is also from New Orleans. I guess its a Baptist Church.
    Its located at:
    5225 Jimmy Carter Boulevard
    Norcross, Ga. 30093.
    I wouldn't be at all surprised if this isn't somehow connected to Jean Sainvil.
    Unrelated. The pastors don't look alike.
    The Mitspa Haitian Baptist Church is duly registered with the GA Sec of State.

    No trace there however of Sainvil, Gospel Assembly, or Eglise Assemblee (the sign in the window).

    I found Isaac Adrien, the young man who served as Silsby's scout. Seems that he's the director of the Children of Promise. I thought he was simply a young man who helped Silsby connect with some desperate parents:

    http://www.echildrenofpromise.org/Ne...In-Rubble.aspx


    "I would like to say that we all can be very proud of Isaac. He has done a great job in the midst of this traumatic event. He and his brother, Steve, begin translating today with the relief efforts being coordinated by Quisqueya Christian School. They felt God wanted them to sign up and volunteer.”

    Note: Isaac was sponsored through Children of Promise for many years, was raised at the House of Blessings Orphanage, and is now the director of the Children of Promise program in Haiti. He is a living example of what sponsorship does in the lives of children."

    I wonder if Judge Sainvil has interviewed Isaac.

    Even though Phil Murphy is mentioned on the Children of Promise website along with Isaac Adrien, Mr. Murphy has distanced himself from the Silsby group:

    http://haitihouseofblessings.org/

    Phil Murphy Wrongly Linked to Haiti Orphan Drama

    "The Lake Wales Ledger recently published an article detailing the unfortunate error made by the New York Times in falsely linking Phil Murphy with the 10 Americans detained in Haiti for attempting to illegally transport 33 children out of the country. Phil has no connection to the 10 Americans who tried to take children."

    http://www.theledger.com/article/201...i-Orphan-Drama


    I guess if it says it on the internet, we need to believe it.

    Thinking about the timeline of who was where when. Silsby went to the orphanage where the Pickett kids were and tried to 'get' them. Do we have a date for that? Anyone know?

    Answering my own question:

    Sunday, Jan. 24: Silsby offers to help

    Silsby makes the first of three phone calls to Richard and Malinda Pickett of Kentucky, offering to help get their three adopted children out of Haiti. The family tells her not to interfere.

    Monday, Jan. 25: Silsby calls again

    Silsby calls the Picketts for the last time offering her help to get the adopted children out of Haiti. The family refuses.

    Tuesday, Jan. 26: Quest for orphans

    • Orphanage worker Isaac Adrien meets Silsby in Port-au-Prince. He says Silsby tells him she is looking for homeless children.

    • Silsby attempts to find the three children awaiting adoption by the Picketts, Richard Pickett says. The children were not given to her.

    Has anyone found any mention as to the name of the orphanage where the Pickett kids were? In a huge city, fraught with turmoil, how did Silsby find those particular children?

    Were they at one of Phil Murphy's House of Blessings homes or how about Isaac Adrien's Children of Promise?

    On Phil Murphy's own website for House of Blessings, he links himself to Isaac Adrien:

    http://haitihouseofblessings.org/

    "Phil Murphy, co-founder of House of Blessings and the Children of Promise Sponsorship Program in Callebasse, Haiti, reports on his recent visit to the community of Callebasse and with the sponsored children there."

    I'm not seeing how Mr. Murphy can distance himself from Mr. Adrien. I guess it's possible that Mr. Adrien worked with Silsby and Mr. Murphy didn't know it but they do seem to have a close alliance. It is very clear that Mr. Murphy is listed as co-founder of the Children of Promise Sponsorship program which Mr. Adrien is in charge of.

    Come on......

    "Anderson spoke by phone with David Louis in Port-au-Prince. David works at an orphanage run by his father and was hired by Ms. Silsby as an interpreter. Richard Pickett in Nashville talked about his experiences with Silsby. Pickett was in Port-au-Prince to bring home 3 Haitian children he and his wife adopted (with the proper paperwork), when his wife was contacted three times by Silsby saying she was in Haiti and could get their kids out.

    Pickett's wife told Silsby no - Richard was already on the ground and they didn't need her help, but Silsby went to the orphanage anyway. Pickett thinks Silsby was trying to use the kids for fundraising purposes."



    So, possibly Silsby learned of the Pickett children through David Louis, who works at his father's orphanage in Port au Prince?

    Murphy had nothing to do with anything, imo.

    That proves what I said earlier: why would Silsby be at the DR side of the northern border crossing on Jan 27, as Sainvil claims? On Jan 27 she was already in PaP.

    "The Picketts said they were immediately suspicious of Silsby. The Kentucky couple didn't need her help — the government had already given them permission to go pick up the children. But Silsby persisted, they said.

    She showed up at the Compassion for All orphanage in Haiti, asking to collect the Picketts' three adopted children and claiming to be Malinda Pickett's friend, according to Richard Pickett.

    That orphanage and others turned her down."

    I vaguely remember a report that said that one night Silsby cried because nobody wanted to give her any orphans. Did any of you see that too?

    A transcript of AC's interview with Pickett about the three kids and Silsby's attept to take the children from Compassion for All Orphanage run by Arthur Louis and his son, David:

    http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...04/acd.01.html

    ".....But the person that gave Laura our [ETA the Picketts] contact information told her explicitly that you cannot just take any child across the border. You have to have the correct permissions to do that from the government. And Laura wanted to make the calls anyway to see if there are ways that she could get children....."

    and


    "She came up with this idea a couple of years ago. And she actually hired her 24-year-old nanny to actually set up this orphanage. They started a foundation. And it was really in its infancy. They thought that -- you know, they put together this manifesto. They thought they would eventually get down to the Dominican Republic sometime down the road.

    Then the earthquake happens and all of a sudden they wanted to get down there right away. So, she came here to the church. She met with the pastor. And they solicited donations. And word came out to the church members, does anybody want to go to Haiti and go set up this orphanage in the Dominican Republic?

    And you had a few people raise their hands and say, I want to go. So, some of the people who actually went down with her only, you know, raised their hand 48 hours before they actually got on an airplane..."
