We are anxiously waiting to hear from Morgan, hoping that they still have power and she will be able to communicate with us tomorrow night. In the meantime, we are confident that she is safe and the Lord is protecting His missionaries. Here is the email we received on Friday:
We wanted to let you know that as of Friday, November 8, 2013 6:30 PM Philippine time, your missionary is safe and accounted for. We know you are concerned about the typhoon. The eye of the storm is south of us but because it is so large, we are feeling the effects of heavy rains and strong winds. All missionaries have been prepared with adequate food supplies, water, and candles to last through the storm. They have likewise been instructed to remain in their apartments until the storm has passed. We would welcome your prayers in behalf of all the missionaries in the Philippines. We will update you in the morning.
