People they loved are bleeding and crying for help.
For former LDS missionaries who served in Haiti, last week's massive earthquake demolished more than just a place on the map. It crushed a country that, for two years, they called home.
"When you serve a mission, you get to know people, and care about them a lot, in a different way than otherwise," said David Cope, who served in Haiti from 1989 to 1991 and visited again in 1995.
Cope, a general contractor by trade, is desperately trying to find some way down to the country he loves.
"I (would be one) guy in a nation of 9 million," he said. "But I still feel like I want to go ... even if it's to go pick up rocks with my bare hands for as long as I can stay. It's probably not the most effective, but (because of my) ties and feelings, I want to do something more than just send them a check."
