Earl...

I was reading the comments from my last post. The Wright family brought to our attention that Hurricane Earl was heading to Turks and Caicos...

We had no idea that a hurricane was heading to the spot that our son Mark would be going to in just a few days... oh my! He is supposed to leave this Sunday.

We are watching it closely, now. It doesn't look good for the islands. The hurricane is a category 4 and these islands are small and the one he is going to is fairly primitive. We pray for those on the islands that they will be okay and the damage will be minimal.

This study abroad had to be canceled in 2008 due to a hurricane. They are still rebuilding from that hurricane.

We will soon see if Marks study abroad will a go or if it will be cancelled...

Will be praying for your son's safety. My aunts and uncles live on the east coast as well and they are getting ready for the storm.
