Methodist Leaders Victims of Haiti Earthquake

Sam Dixon and Clint Rabb, Christian ministers with the General Board of Global Ministries (the United Methodist Church's mission and humanitarian organization), died of injuries received in the January 12 earthquake in Haiti.

Good friends, they were trapped with four other people, who survived, for 55 hours in the ruins of the Hotel Montana. Dixon headed the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and Rabb worked with mission volunteers. They were in Haiti in an effort to improve health services in the very poor country.
