We've gotten reports from friends in Havana that Gustav landed a pretty good pop last weekend across western Cuba. Before this summer, I would have simply been relieved that Gustav wasn't another Katrina hitting New Orleans. But Gustav did its damage in other places.
Parts of western Cuba, we are told, are without power, water and gas with looting taking place. There were no deaths in Cuba but the storm roared over the Island of Youth and then northward toward Louisiana, slapping the west side of Cuba on the way by.
Please pray for the people in Cuba. They will get no official US aid and, as this news article indicates, they are in great need of help. There are believers there, and they have asked for our prayers. We can do that much, can't we?
