We just got word last night from the Coopers that they and the kids will be coming home due to the flu epidemic in Mexico. Remember they are our best friends who are missionaries at a University along with their children Carter (5) and Emerson(3). They are located in Puebla, Mexico . . . way down south. Clay's sister and her husband are also there along with several friends from the states. CMF (their parent organization) has ordered all their staff in Mexico back to the states. Amanda and the kids are the first to leave this Sunday along with a pregnant staff member. Then Clay and the others will follow in the next days to weeks. Please pray for their safety and health as they prepare for the trip. Also pray that the local students understand and don't feel deserted by their new colleagues. Thirdly pray that the US doesn't close its borders before everyone that needs to get home is home.
