Pray for Our World: Anguilla

Anguilla is a British Dependency in the Caribbean.  With only 91 square miles, it is just a dot on the map.  It is a remnant of a bygone era as a little colonial outpost.

Here is a statement from their government website regarding the recent tragedy of Hurricane Irma.  They genuinely seem to be very humble and grateful people.  May we all remember those who are less fortunate, that we are all beautiful people created by God, and may we all be so humbled and helpful to our neighbors.

The Government of Anguilla is grateful for all the good will expressed worldwide as a result of the devastation the island has faced during the passage of Hurricane Irma. The challenges faced are not insurmountable, but will demand a concerted effort locally, regionally and internationally. There have been many offers for donation of relief supplies, building materials, technical expertise, and many other items vitally needed to rebuild the country. The Government of Anguilla welcomes these offers and expresses its appreciation to those who have already committed to help in various ways, and would like to also express advance words of thanks to those who will assist in the future.
