KY youth group returns from Haiti after violent protests

MARION, KY (WAVE) - A Kentucky mission team is back in America after violent protests forced airlines to cancel flights out of Haiti.

Family members of the youth group at Life In Christ Church in Marion, Kentucky waited patiently for their loved ones to return, while occasional text messages from trip volunteers helped put parents and church members at ease when communication was scarce.

The pastor of the church says violent protests won't stop them from going back into the mission field to help people.
