I love you all,
This is a letter from his mission president....
Dear Parents of our Elder and Sister Missionaries,
As you are probably already aware, Hurricane Matthew will likely pass over or be very near to Jamaicaand . Let me assure you that my number one priority as a Mission President is the welfare of our missionaries. As such, we will be in full “Hurricane Prep” mode for the next two days.
Every missionary will be doing theirP-day activities early, either today or – this includes stocking up with a weeks’ worth of food and water, as well as emailing each of you. We are moving all the Sister Missionaries into Kingston or Mandeville and moving those missionaries that serve in coastal areas, or areas that are likely to flood, to higher and safer ground.
As parents, you should be very proud of your sons and daughters! Elder Gonzalez, President of the Caribbean Area, said that in all his decades of doing mission tours he has never seen such obedient and capable missionaries. I concur with his assessment.
I have faith that the Lord has called us, as well as each of your sons and daughters, to serve here in Jamaica at this time for a reason. We will overcome every challenge as we love, serve and grow in the Gospel. Sister Pearson and I ask for your continued prayers. If you can, we ask that you join with our missionaries in our dailyprayer. The heavens will take note of the more than 200 additional fervent prayers uniting with those of our 100 missionaries and we will be blessed.
President and Sister Pearson
