Just before five oíclock on the day of Haitiís devastating earthquake, Bill went up the seven flights of stairs to ring the bell to summon the children for prayers in the chapel. "Donít ring the bell!" resonated within him - and he heeded the call. Had it sounded, everyone would have been in
the chapel and would have perished when the earthquake struck. Instead, all
survived and Bill, tossed to the rippling ground below, was the only serious injury.
