Yesterday, I posted a request for prayer for Pastor Charles and the people of Haiti as they seek to recover from Hurricane Ike. Today, I would like to request that everyone who reads this post also pray for Cuba.
I received a report today from a good friend concerning the conditions in Cuba. Based upon our church contacts in Cuba, we were informed that as of today 2.6 million Cubans moved to higher ground because of Hurricane Ike. This is nearly 25% of the island’s population!
I love the Cuban people. I have had the privilege of traveling throughout the entire country (Lord willing I hope to be going again early next year). Mud walls and thatched roofs do not hold up during hurricanes. Food is rationed already. The entire Island was pounded by Hurricane Ike. So, while you pray for Haiti, please keep Cuba in your prayers as well.
