DONATIONS to the Covenant World Relief Haiti fund are now at the $600,000 mark. ~ link
I LOOKED for the books I needed in two area bookstores on Wednesday. They were not in stock so I placed an Amazon order on Wednesday evening. The books shipped on Thursday afternoon (yesterday). They were in my PO box this morning -- even with the standard free shipping.
