Delbert Beachy in Haiti Earthquake

Fifteen minutes off their flight and Lavon Bontrager, Michael Ropp, DELBERT BEACHY and James Miller of the Sharon Bethel congregation in Kalona were greeted by the stuff of nightmares - a magnitude 7 earthquake that flattened much of Port-au-Prince and has so far claimed more than 150,000 lives, with many more bodies still buried beneath the rubble.
The four are members of Haiti Relief and Missions, a faith-based Anabaptist charity based in Berlin, Ohio.
Bontrager, as a board member of the organization, had gone on mission business. He served in Haiti from 1997 to 1999.
Bontrager said they were about 15 minutes from the airport near the docks when the quake struck. Their truck began violently pitching and 8-foot high concrete walls surrounding an open-air market began to fall.
"At first I thought there had been an explosion," he said of the natural disaster, describing a huge cloud of dust arising over the downtown area. They continued driving after the initial quake, coming upon Port-au-Prince's three-story post office, now just a flattened mass of concrete.
Those who had made it out of the buildings were crowding the streets. "There was screaming and raving in every directions," he recalled. Their destination was their mission in the village of Labalene, about five hours from Port-au-Prince.

Emma Beachy RN, Medical Mission Trip to Haiti

GOSHEN -- Local teams of volunteer health workers are "desperately disappointed" that planned medical relief trips to Haiti are being postponed due to dangerously volatile conditions and canceled flights into the earthquake-ravaged Caribbean island.
If plans come together, EMMA BEACHY, who is 55, will pay for her flight with an unexpected bonus check she received recently from Goshen General Hospital. It will be the nurse's first medical mission trip. "If we can get in there, can we even get out as planned? We just don't know. It's so huge, and we're so small, but we have a job to do," BEACHY said. "We want to fill our suitcases with as much supplies as we can. I think we'll take some MCC canned meat along, rolls of cheese, peanut butter, protein bars and lots of suturing materials for lacerations," she said.

Pelton Beachy Girls Basketball, Northern Ohio League

With last week's 49-41 win over Upper Sandusky, the Galion girls basketball team ended a decade-long Northern Ohio League losing streak. The Tigers had lost 153 straight NOL games. (PHOTO COURTESY OF PHOTORAMA
GALION -- January 5 might have been just another day on the calendar. "Galion 49, Upper Sandusky 41" might have looked like just another final score in the statewide wire roundup. Yet, for 11 players and a coaching staff, there was nothing ordinary about Jan. 5 or the outcome that night. It was the first time a Galion girls basketball team had won a Northern Ohio League game since 1999. "We wanted to change that record," senior guard Tiffany Reed said. At 153 games, the streak was so long junior Jessie Rodriguez was 4 the last time Galion won a conference game. The two freshmen on the roster, Jordan Kuns and PELTON BEACHY, were barely walking when that 42-36 victory over Bucyrus was recorded Jan. 23, 1999.

Steven's Leukemia, age 13, Son of Cathy & Devon Beachey, IN

Roberts, a fire engineer and paramedic with the Tulare Fire Department, got invited to Indiana because he helped save the life of STEVEN BEACHEY, 13, by donating his own bone marrow to help cure Steven's leukemia. The boy's grateful parents, CATHY and DEVON BEACHEY, invited the Roberts family to visit their Amish community outside Topeka. Nine years ago, when he was in the Air National Guard, Roberts signed up to be a bone marrow donor. He forgot about it until mid-2008 when the C.W. Bill Young Marrow Donor Center called. He was a match for a 12-year-old boy in need of bone marrow stem cells. Roberts, 31, didn't hesitate. "Definitely I'm interested" he said. Fellow firefighters and city employees donated time so he could go to the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. Roberts didn't know it then, but 12 hours later the bone marrow was administered to Steven in Indianapolis. Rodnie and Emily Roberts always wondered who got it and what happened. A year later, the marrow center e-mailed Rodnie Roberts a phone number in Indiana. Click here to read all of this amazing story in the Fresno Bee, Columnist - Lewis Griswold.
