Great fall of China sinks world stocks, dollar tumbles

WEB Notes: We posted quite a few links for you today. Take note of the other markets around the world collapsing. China’s market dropped 9%. Oil is now down to $44 a barrel which is adding to the drop in middle east markets. The DOW opened up down over 1,000 points this morning and has now “settled” into a drop of 600 points as of this writing. This is on top of last weeks huge losses. This week will be very interesting. Whether or not this is the collapse we have been discussing for sometime now remains to be seen, it could all recover tomorrow. Either way, no panicking from everyone in the audience right? Stay in the Word, today is going to be a great day, we have the victory (1 Corinthians 15:57)!
