To update you, Sandy is dying. However, she’s still scattering a few humbling reminders of her visit to New England! All missionaries are safe and accounted for. However, there was some loss of power, cell phone use, high winds, moderate rain, and minor flooding especially in Vermont where Hurricane Irene left such damage one year ago. Some areas of the mission were relatively untouched while others felt the “ripple” effect of the major blow our fellow missionaries and missions to the south of us experienced. I have been in contact with a fellow mission president in New York City and they will appreciate your prayers in their behalf.
As a precaution, I have postponed a specialized zone training meeting for today. I am allowing our missionaries to resume proselyting anywhere from a few city blocks to a 15 miles radius depending upon the conditions in each individual area. These limitations will likely be lifted tomorrow. There have been some inconveniences but the ultimate goal of safe missionaries has thus far been achieved.
Thank you for your prayers. We’re all safe because of your faith. If conditions worsen I will apprise you, but at this point let this mighty work roll forward as it “fills the whole earth!”
