Women Who Visited Haiti Tell Their Story To Church In Eastern Carolina

At the Greenville Christian Fellowship Church, service was a little different Sunday morning.

Parishioners listened to the tales of three woman. Each having a story tell about their arrival in Haiti.

The woman got there just 45 minutes before the quake hit.

The woman were in Haiti to help out an orphanage but soon their mission had quickly changed.

"I have no medical training whatsoever. My one qualification is that I've had two children," says Linda Graham who would help deliver two babies.

She says one of the woman she helped had not learned the proper breathing techniques for having a child.

"She was screaming and it was her first baby, " said Graham, "She was unfamiliar with the process.

Her baby was breached and she was so upset. So I told her to take a deep breath and say hallelujah. And she did and that's how we got through the delivery," Grahman said.

Lisa Lewis helped take care of the sick and injured. She became like a nurse to many of the people in her area.

"Basically I'm just a mother and I have only put a band aid on people or my children. That's the extent of my medical experience."

The women captured their work and the images on camera. The moms never thought their mission to help others would take such a drastic turn. Many people, they say, had nothing left but their faith.

Kellee Metty said, "I watched people who lost everything. They lost their families, they lost homes, health and safety and still chose to praise god."

Pastor Mike Williams says the reason he brought the ladies to share their story was so that other Christians could see what was happening first hand.
