Pray for our Jamaican friends

Please keep the Collins family, and everyone else that we got to know while we were in Jamaica in your prayers. Hurricane Dean is currently aimed at Jamaica, and it could become a Category 4 storm by the time it gets there. Right now, the center of the storm is projected to slide just south of the island. Since Bamboo and Ocho Rios are on the north side, they would likely avoid the worst of the damage, although it would still be a significant storm. However, Dean would not have to bend very far north to land a direct hit, which could make the damage much worse. Three years ago, Hurricane Ivan actually took the entire roof off of the Collins' house. Please pray that God will keep all of them safe from the storm.
