Churches across the Valley held mid-week services Wednesday with the Haiti quake victims weighing heavily on many hearts. Across the Valley, people prayed for the families who have lost loved ones and the rescue efforts underway. At Fresno's People's Church, churchgoers say they immediately thought about the victims after hearing about the quake and then turned to prayer. "You're helpless otherwise. You can just say, oh those poor people, or you can watch it on TV. But the first thing you can do is pray," said Lila Townsend.
