Economic Hardship

Links to- CNN story & AP Story

We are blessed to be able to absorb the rising cost of food. We've noticed our own grocery bill has increased by about 30% since 2006. The cost of rice is up about 40%. We cannot imagine trying to absorb that sort of increase as a Haitian making very little each month. It is understandable that people are getting angry, but unfortunately the protesting results in little positive change.

We're praying for a great rainy season, growing gardens and that cooler heads prevail.
