It's been a difficult time for a Haitian church, here in Kentucky.

Many members of 'Praise Tabernacle,' in Lexington, have loved ones who were hurt or killed in the earthquake, while others are still waiting to hear from family in Haiti.

A handful of church members, most originally from Haiti, gathered for support at the church.

Some are still dealing with the loss of family members, like Elchanan Fontaine who talks about loosing an uncle.

The international student at UK says his parents lived through it, but lost everything.

The pastor of 'Praise Tabernacle' says it is prayer that has helped his family and other church members get through this difficult time.

Pastor Paul Dumay says many church members still don't know the fate of their loved ones back in Haiti.

In the days to come Dumay says they will continue to have faith, and hope that God answers their prayers.
