Survivor of 2010 Haiti earthquake to visit Methodist churches in the UK

An American minister who survived 55 hours with no food and water is set to visit London on 13 January 2012.

The Revd James Gulley, who was trapped by rubble in the 2010 Haiti earthquake, will talk about how people have been rebuilding their lives in the Caribbean island two years after the disaster struck. He will visit Wesley's Chapel in London, the Houses of Parliament and the North Shields and Whitley Bay Circuit during his ten-day visit.

James Gulley was in Haiti in January 2010 as part of a three-member team from the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church on a quest to improve medical services and agricultural practices in Haiti, one of the world's poorest countries. The other two members of the team - the Revd Clint Rabb and the Revd Sam Dixon - did not survive the earthquake which killed more than 250,000 people, according to figures reported by the BBC. Mr Gulley's has said that his experience inspired him to work full-time with the United Methodist Committee on Relief in Haiti.
