    So sorry to hear of the devastation in St. Lucia. I was scheduled to arrive in St. Lucia on Wednesday for Carib News Conference at Grande Sandals but the due to flight cancellations and other concerns the conference has been canceled. Most of the participants were deeply concerned and hope things will get back to normal within the next few days. It is always heartbreaking to hear of deaths. I pray for all St. Lucians and look forward to visiting next year and encouraging more of my friends to visit this lovely island.
