Interview with Jim Gulley

The Rev. James L. Gulley is an agricultural consultant for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). In January 2010, he was visiting Haiti with a small delegation representing UMCOR and United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) when the earthquake struck. Gulley was trapped with his colleagues underneath the rubble of the Hotel Montana for more than two days. He survived the ordeal, and the following month, he returned to work, assisting vulnerable communities in the Haitian countryside. 

In this interview, Rev. Gulley speaks about the progress he has seen since the time of the disaster, about his work, and what drives his commitment.
