Hurricane Tomas

Late last week Hurricane Tomas passed between Haiti and Cuba.  Meteorologists originally thought that it was going to go directly over Haiti, but luckily it shifted west and, although it was still felt in Haiti, it wasn't nearly as bad as it was originally predicted.  COTP is in a valley surrounded by mountains, and so they had rain and wind, but it wasn't anything destructive at all.

I am very thankful that the women I have spent so much time with over the past few months weren't directly effected by this.  However, there were people who were.  Click here to read what young children at the Foyer Des Petits De'munis Orphanage went through during the hurricane.  It is unreal to think that these kids had to sit on a roof in the middle of a hurricane because it was the safest place for them to be.  I am thankful that we didn't have to do that with our children.
