...I've uploaded some PIBC photos from Island Formal Day and the Spiritual Emphasis Weekend Retreat at Rios Beach.

...The French are embracing evangelical Christianity. The figure is now up to 2% of the population, which is major growth.

...Archbishop Anthony Apuron (Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Agana) is encouraging lawmakers to begin discussing ways to make Guam a "gambling-free island." Pretty gutsy. The church stopped using bingo and raffles in 1997 so they could maintain a credible voice against organized gambling.

...SM, a department store chain from the Philippines, has opened a store on Guam. I'm not sure how to describe it -- perhaps an Asian fusion of Wal-Mart and Mervyn's. Anyway, it was packed today when we bought some flip-flops and a candle. The competition should be good for Guam.
