Dear Families of the Legazpi Missionaries,

I am just writing to inform you that all of our missionaries are doing fine.  We still do not have power in a majority of our mission. We lost power on Christmas Day due to Typhoon Nina.   Because of this, many of our missionaries are not able to email home.  We have been told that it could be up to a month without power.  We have communication with them through texting.  They are often able to charge their phones at the meeting houses where generators are being used for a couple of hours each night.  I know it can be a worry when you do not hear from them on their usual preparation day.  I wanted to assure you that we are keeping in contact with them and all are well. 

We have communication at the office because we have a generator for power.  If any of our missionaries travel to Legazpi for meetings or other reasons, we will have them email home from the office.  As soon as power is restored in each area, we will encourage the missionaries to email home.

All of the missionaries have needed supplies.  In the areas hardest hit, they have been given supplies of rice, canned meat and water.  They are busily engaged in helping with service and distributing needed supplies to others who have lost their homes and shelter.  We are grateful for their faithful dedication and service to the Lord and to His children.  Our missionaries are truly disciples of the Lord!

Thank you for your prayers in their behalf and your continued support of your missionary.  We are grateful for each one and acknowledge the hand of the Lord in keeping them safe through this latest storm.  We pray for them daily and watch over them as we would our own children.  We love them!
