Missionary zone service project helps Haiti


Twenty-two Mormon missionaries from the Washington D.C. South mission

recently helped in a service project to benefit victims of the earthquake

in Haiti.

LDS missionaries gathered Feb. 18 at two different sites in Bristow, Va., about 30 miles west of Washington, D.C., on a

sunny but chilly afternoon to help sort, pack and load boxes that Medical

Missionaries would be sending to Haiti.

The non-denominational humanitarian organization, Medical Missionaries,

has had an ongoing relief effort in the country for 12 years, said Dr.

Gilbert R. Irwin, the Manassas, Va., physician who founded the charity. But

the need has increased since the devastating earthquake hit Jan. 12.
