It rained all day yesterday and it's still raining though the sky is not as dark. Rivers are overflowing as the denuded mountains cannot absorb the rain. Many smaller roads have been washed out and the main road from PaP lost a bridge and an another area disappeared under water. This is our only supply route. We are hearing of many more people going to the hospital with sick babies, that many have lost crops, than there will be fewer children going to school this academic year. Haiti did not need this at this time. Food and fuel prices have gone through the roof giving cause to the political manifestations which can so easily turn violent. Will keep you posted on developments and what is being done to help. As you all well know, prayers always help and we need 'em now.
