WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - Two Wahpeton-area mission workers who

survived the Haiti earthquake have returned home.

Wahpeton nurse Brenda Marzigliano and Georgia Dufault, a former

Breckenridge, Minn., resident who now works in Moorhead, were

stationed at a hospital about 80 miles north of Port-au-Prince when

the quake hit.

Dufault and Marzigliano (mar-ZIG'-lee-AWN'-oh) helped treat more

than two dozen patients before being evacuated last Friday. They

say the evacuation involved treacherous bus rides through the

mountains to the neighboring Dominican Republic and then a flight

to Miami.

Dufault says they feel "extremely blessed."
