Six missionaries from the Pella area are among those who were in Haiti when a series of deadly earthquakes struck the Caribbean nation; beginning Tuesday evening near Port au Prince. Pastor Roger De Waard of Grace Fellowship Church says the members of his congregation had gone to Haiti to do mission work at an orphanage for approximately one week, and arrived the morning before the deadly quake. De Waard says communication with the missionaries has been limited, but reports are that everyone is accounted for and uninjured.
