The missionary team leader arrested in Haiti after trying to take children to an orphanage after the Jan. 12 earthquake is back in the U.S.
A crowd of family, friends and church members welcomed Laura Silsby home in Idaho, Wednesday.
"[It] feels incredible, feels incredible," she said at the airport. "I just give praise to my God [and] thank Him for bringing me home."
"Today is a day of joy and celebration, enjoying my family and my friends," Silsby continued. "I have longed for this for a long time.".
Silsby was convicted of arranging illegal travel and spent more than three months behind bars. She was originally charged with kidnapping and criminal association, but those charges were dropped.
Silsby and nine other missionaries were taken into custody after being caught transporting Haitian children to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic without proper paperwork.
A judge released Silsby May 17 on time already served.
Charges against the other missionaries on her team have been dropped.
