Kentuckians, as well as others around the world, have spent the day frantically trying to get in touch with loved ones in Haiti after Tuesday's devastating earthquake.

Ten Kids is a Kentucky-based organization, currently supporting 7 Haitian children in Port-au-Prince.

Ten Kids officials say right now, they don't know if any of those children are alive.

Director Gip Gibson says he's making travel arrangements to leave for Port-au-Prince in the next few days, so he can help with relief efforts there.

Gibson says he spoke with the director in Haiti Tuesday night, but the phone the was disconnected before he could ask any questions.

Meanwhile, Capital City Christian Church in Frankfort has a mission team in Haiti. All of its 13 members are said to be ok. They left last Thursday, and were expected home this Thursday evening, but those travel plans are stil up in the air.

The church held a service Wednesday night that will focus on the people of Haiti, as well as the mission team.
