Bruce Blumer is safe, sound and at home, but with a host of sad memories of the earthquake that last week devastated Haiti.
On the Haitian island of La Gonave for mission work when the quake hit, Blumer, of Mitchell, and his son, Ian — a student at the University of Sioux Falls — arrived home around 4 a.m. Tuesday. Their post-earthquake journey included lending aid in the wake of the disaster, followed by rides on a lobster boat and a cramped truck, a flight to Florida and, finally, an arrival at the Rapid City Regional Airport.
For Bruce and Ian Blumer, it started as a simple mission trip, designed to provide medical services to needy Haitians.
But after an earthquake Tuesday ripped through Portau-Prince, relatives of the Blumers are relieved to hear that they, and other members of the Methodist mission group, are safe.
