KTVU Interview

Bishop Fritzner Galiothe of Oakland's Equator Faith Mission was also trying to reach loved ones and fellow religious leaders in Haiti. His church supports several churches, schools, clinics and an orphanage near the epicenter."That was my first worry, because I know that we have all of these kids inside," said Bishop Galiothe. "Last night we slept about 2 hours just thinking about what are we going to do [and] how we can get some news."Wednesday afternoon, Galiothe finally received word. The orphanage had collapsed, but the 38 young boys and girls all survived. A small miracle amidst the devastation.But that joy was short-lived for Galiothe as he also learned that 15 church members died. His wife, Paulette Galiothe, was still waiting to find out the fate of nine of her brothers and sisters."I have not heard anything from any of them since yesterday. And I have called, nobody pick the phone, nobody called me. I don't know anything," said Paulette.
