Best Cajun


Thanks to a huge influx of residents from the Caribbean over the years, it is no surprise that Miami is home to lots of wonderful Cajun and Creole restaurants. With its strong flavors and slightly spicy appeal, Creole and Cajun cuisine is finding a home in the Magic City and diners are digging in. — Julie Levin

      How leovly to have such good news for the brothers and sisters in Haiti after all the horrible things they have had to endure. I have been reading your updates and remembering you all in my prayers. There was an update on British news recently showing many people still in tents, it was especially good to know that our brothers have the shelters for the hurricane season. Jehovah really provides for us both spirtually and physically.With warm Christian Love Claire
