We are grateful to report that all of your missionaries are safe and back to work. The storm caused the second-largest power outage in history as 2.5 million people were without electricity at one point earlier today. Along with the power outages, four people were killed by falling trees in Virginia. Several days before Hurricane Irene approached, each missionary was able to make certain their 72 hour emergency kits were up to date with nonperishable food, fresh batteries, flash lights and water bottles etc.. Cell phones were charged, each car was filled with gas, and safe houses were designated by each bishop where the missionaries could go if necessary to stay with ward members. The members here love their missionaries! We hope this week to avoid any major hurricanes or earthquakes so we can have an historic baptismal month! Thank you for your continued faith and prayers.
