To the Families of all our Missionaries,
First of all thank you for all your prayers and concerns. Here in the Japan Kobe Mission all is well. All missionaries are safe and missionaries with family in the affected areas have all been able to contact their relatives and confirm their safety.
We understand many of you are now concerned with the possible radiation fallout from the nuclear power plants in Fukushima. Please be assured the areas in the Kobe Mission are several hundred miles away from Fukushima and do not fall in any normal path of wind currents that would be cause for alarm should there be any radioactive leakage or possible problems from the power plants. Also note that as of now there has not been any significant leakage to cause alarm. Fukushima City, which is some distance inland from the power plant, is Sister McIntyre's hometown and most all her family and relatives still reside there. So know that we are watching this situation with much interest and concern. Our hearts go out to the people of Japan and our prayers are with them.
