Missionaries work to help contain cholera outbreak in Haiti

Missionaries from Tennessee are doing their part to help contain an outbreak of cholera that already has killed more than 250 people in Haiti.

"People are aware now; fears are there, but they don't know enough to understand the dangers," Andrea Brewer said Monday.

Brewer and her husband Mike, missionaries with Reach Haiti, an organization from Tennessee, are holding clinics in Croix des Bouquet, a northern suburb of Port-au-Prince, to try to teach people how to avoid the disease.

    Missionaries? Why don't they just pray? OH WAIT that's right it's not real. Good for them at least for doing something and making a real difference.

    Even if they're still shallow enough to think prayer is a real form of helping.
