Hawley Introduces Resolution Honoring Natalie and Davy Lloyd

Monday, June 17, 2024

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) introduced a resolution honoring the lives and service of Natalie and Davy Lloyd. The Missouri missionaries were tragically killed last month by gangs while serving in Haiti. The resolution recognizes Natalie and Davy’s efforts in serving the local community in Haiti and honors the incredible legacy the young couple leaves behind.

“All of Missouri mourns the loss of Natalie and Davy Lloyd. They had servants’ hearts, were exceptional missionaries, and great Americans,” said Senator Hawley. “They selflessly dedicated their lives to serving the Lord and others, and the U.S. Senate honors their legacy.”  

Last month, Senator Hawley urged President Biden to mobilize all resources at his disposal to protect the transport of the remains of Natalie and Davy Lloyd as they traveled back home to Missouri from Haiti. Senator Hawley worked closely with the State Department since he first learned the Lloyd’s were in danger. First, to try and provide assistance prior to their death, and then, to bring the Lloyds back home to Missouri.
