A year later, Larsons serving

More than a year after Benjamin J. Larson died in the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake in Haiti, his wife Renee Splichal Larson and cousin Jonathan Larson are serving calls.

All three were students at Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, and were in Haiti at the time of the earthquake.

Minnesota Public Radio gave an update on Renee and Jonathan in a December broadcast.

Renee is now pastor of Heart River Lutheran Church, Mandan, N.D. Jonathan works with children and youth at First Lutheran Church, Duluth, Minn., where Ben's parents are pastors.
