The typhoon is passing beyond the western borders of the Philippines. We are still getting rain and winds in our mission areas but all missionaries remain safe and accounted for. We have received several offers of parents wanting to send supplies to the people hardest hit. President Peterson made a call to President Ardern of the Area Presidency regarding this. President Ardern advised those wishing to help should make a generous contribution to the humanitarian fund on their tithing slips. This fund is what the local leaders draw from to assist those in need to get the things they have urgent need of. We thank you so very much for your prayers, for your generosity and for your willingness to help the Philippine people. We know the Lord has watched over and protected the missionaries here in San Pablo Mission. Please continue to pray for those in areas south of us who were hardest hit with the effects of the typhoon.
