Two news items

1. The Minister of Education announced this morning that, due to the recent catastrophic hurricanes and prohibitively priced food and fuel, schools will not open as scheduled tomorrow. The new date is now October 6th.

2. Hurricane Ike passed Haiti to the north so we were spared his fury. We have rain but little wind. Join us in praying for our sisters and brothers in Gonaives who have suffered much lately. We have heard that the city was under 4 meters (over 12 feet) of water and mud. Hundreds have perished; all crops and animals were lost; hundreds of homes were completely destroyed and thousands left homeless with nothing but what they were wearing or managed to carry. God help them!
