LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A Lincoln missionary group left stranded in Honduras after borders closed and flights were canceled is on its way back to Nebraska, and it's bringing with it 79 other Americans who were stranded, as well.

However, the College View Church decided to charter a plane, and the 42 missionaries are flying back to the United States, and are set to land in Kansas City.

In addition, the group was able to bring with them another 79 Americans, including other mission groups, embassy workers, and others, a member of the church said.
