Two Batavia missionaries have returned home from earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
Zach Ashley and Sharon Wolf arrived at Buffalo International early this afternoon. They traveled to Haiti with a 14-member Lutheran Church team originally in Haiti to work at an orphanage in Les Cayes, about 120 mi. west of the capital of Port au Prince.
WBTA News talked with both Zach and Sharon upon their arrival in Buffalo. For Sharon, the images of the epic disaster were fresh, and painful.
