Pray for the families of those who lost their lives in St. Lucia

My heart and prayers go out to the people of St. Lucia as they mourn the death of more than 17 people in a bus crash. The Prime Minister has declared a three-day mourning across the islands. This is a terrible tragedy. But is also reminds us that road safety is just as important as any other. Unintentional accidents cause many injuries and deaths across our beautiful islands. Those of us from islands with hills and mountains know the dangers of driving with the mountain on one side and the sea on the other. Continue to pray for the families affected.
