SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Haiti's massive 7.0 earthquake Tuesday trapped many Savannahians who were already in Haiti doing missionary work when the quake hit.

One of those caught in the quake is the pastor of Savannah Christian Revival Center, Freddie Hebron.

After hours of waiting by the phone, Hebron's wife Barbara Kim Hebron, received a call from him early Thursday morning.

Hebron left for Haiti Monday. His wife says she was planning on joining him later in the month, but then heard the news about the quake.

"I was at home in the bed with a cold and a friend from the church called and said, 'Kim you need to look at the news,'" she said.

That's when she saw the destruction. She immediately got on the phone but couldn't get through to anyone.

"I know he's working, where ever he's at, he's working I know that," she said.

Now, the pastor is trying to make it home to his wife, his four daughters and his congregation.

Hebron's wife is taking donations like cleaning supplies and clothing. You can drop things off at the church at 37th and Bull Streets.
