NEWARK, N.J. – One of two New Jersey church groups traveling in Haiti has survived the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck the Caribbean nation, and a member of the second says that group may be OK as well.

The stepdaughter of the pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church in Hackettstown says Frank Fowler called a church member in New Jersey on Wednesday to say the group survived the disaster.

The 15-member group, which includes two high school students, traveled to Haiti on a humanitarian mission to provide birth kits, diapers and other supplies, Fowler’s wife, Karen, said Wednesday.

Later, a member of a Mercer County church group sent a text message to her sister-in-law to say she was OK. She wasn’t able to call or immediately provide more details. Up to 20 people are in that group.
