We just spent the past three months teaching in Haiti. Our area is a bit like the American Southwest, dry, gravelly, scattered thorny trees and not much else due to rampant stray goats. Bushrat is training some Security men for protecting the Mission (I’m sure some of you are aware of the riots and unrest) and talked about fire/disaster drills. Our supervisor said “Everything is built of block and concrete. We don’t have fires…” Then one young couple’s house burned down in the night…tinder-dry roof rafters and ceiling beams. Thank God they escaped. Fires WILL happen. Be prepared.
