Praying For The People Of The Bahamas

Hurricane Irene has already caused widespread damage to the Southeastern and Central Bahamas. It looks like the eye may have passed right over North Eleuthera this morning and is targeting The Abacos today. The predicted track puts Irene right over Marsh Harbor and Great Guana Cay. This would put the eye just to the east of Treasure Cay, but I'm afraid not far enough east to limit the effects.

We had actually started to make inquires to go back to Treasure Cay for the upcoming Labor Day weekend prior to Irene forming way out in the Atlantic. We might still go depending on the aftermath of today's events. Anyway, we are praying for all the wonderful people of the Bahamas. Sidney, we hope to see you very soon! Stay safe.
