There is renewed hope for families of the Christian missionaries who were kidnapped last month outside Port-au-Prince.
The U.S. government has been made privy to some sort of evidence (though they have not elaborated on what kind) that points to the likelihood that at least some of the 17 missionaries are still alive, according to the Christian Broadcasting Network.
