Prayers for Brittons Hill family

It's another sad Sunday in Bim. As many of you might have heard by now, a section of an apartment building in Brittons Cross Road, St. Michael, collapsed into a cave, trapping a family of five.

About 45 minutes ago, Prime Minister Arthur and other Cabinet members updated the media on the rescue efforts, and they stated that a specially-trained, 12-person rescue team from Miami-Dade County in Florida is to arrive in Barbados around 8:00 tonight. Dogs trained in rescues such as this are also being flown in.

I'm asking everyone out there to please pray for the couple and three children trapped underground, and for the persons carrying out the rescue efforts. It's going to be a long night.
