The missionaries were working at the Maison de Lumiere orphanage in Port-au-Prince when the 7.0 quake struck on Tuesday. Family members weren't able to contact them for two days.
One member of the group stayed behind, the Orange County Register reported, ostensibly to help.
The Orange County group included nine adults and a 15-year-old girl. The missionaries had planned to reach out to homeless children there, the Register reported.
The orphanage's building apparently survived the quake and is even being used as a makeshift triage center.
