34-year-old Justo Smoker Charged in Linda Stoltzfoos Kidnapping

The news this morning that someone had been arrested in the Linda Stoltzfoos missing person case, followed by this update from police, is utterly heartbreaking! I feel a mix of grief for the family and Amish community, and anger at the evil done against them. Especially against Linda.

Please take time to read the update PARADISE MAN CHARGED WITH KIDNAPPING 18-YR-OLD LINDA STOLTZFOOS., and share the photos as requested (below).

“We ask that members of the media and public share and distribute, if possible, the photos of Smoker and his vehicle on broadcasts and reports and via social media channels.” Source: PARADISE MAN CHARGED WITH KIDNAPPING 18-YR-OLD LINDA STOLTZFOOS.

And continue to pray for her family and the community. When such a tragedy is imposed on a community it causes deep collective suffering and loss of safety. May God be near them and comfort their sorrowing hearts. While the article states they believe Linda was harmed, at this point nothing further is stated, so we continue to pray she is found and our hearts long for her safety.

As always…

Love,
