Free Phone Wallpaper for October  Nick Beasley  1st Oct

Pinch, punch, first of the month...

#prayeralert: Malta Boat Sinks Leaving 500 Dead  Laura Gish  23rd Sep

Two thousand five hundred. That’s how many people are believed to have drowned in the Mediterranean this year alone — 500 of those were lost last week when their boat was rammed by another boat near Malta.  

The boat had left Egypt in early September, carrying about 500 migrants. Two Palestinian survivors reported to authorities that the boat was intentionally sunk by traffickers. On board were Syrians, Palestinians, Egyptians, and Sudanese. The traffickers told the women and children to get on a much smaller, less safe boat. They refused.
