Two Haitian women discuss Bible study in Creole at the Rockville Seventh Adventist Church where at least ten Haitian families worship.

When the Rockville Seventh Day Adventist Church held a fund raiser late last year for Haiti, they had no way of knowing they would have to send more help so soon.
Volunteer Rocky Twyman is coordinating the effort. He spoke to the parish before the Saturday morning sermon.
"I just want to challenge all other Adventist churches to do something," he says. "Go home after church and bring some some clean clothing, and we're gonna get it to Haiti."
"This is a human need and whether there is tragedy we all belong to each other," says Pastor Bertram Melbourne. "We are [our] brother's keeper."
The church is collecting clothes, food and monetary aid which they'll send to an international non-profit called the Adventist Development and Relief Agency.
The group focuses heavily on African-Caribbean nations.
