When the earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday, January 12, Olgan was working at the Holiday Inn and Soline was at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Centrale chapel meeting with the bishop about a new church calling. Both parents were unharmed and went to check on their three children at home who where staying with a caretaker. They found their three-story apartment complex had collapsed.
“We thought our children had died,” remembered Olgan. “I kept praying to Heavenly Father to help us find our children.”
It took ten hours to dig their children out of the rubble. Their oldest son, Gancci, was singing primary songs that could be heard by rescue workers trying to dig him out.
