Earthquake Update #5

If you are not aware, the church has held an official press conference regarding the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear/radiation situation in Japan. You can watch the video at
As Elder Holland says in the press conference, missionaries in Sendai and Tokyo will be relocated to other missions throughout Japan. At this point we do not know how many missionaries will go to each mission and how long they will remain. We will update you when we know more. We do know the Kobe Mission has the capacity to accommodate many more missionaries if needed. We will keep you posted. Please know we are safe and well in Kobe and ready to help as we can. We are a very safe distance from the affected areas.
We expect this to begin immediately.

President, Know that you are loved by all your missionaries and their families...We all appreciate the love, concern and care you are taking with them. I know we pray for you and the missionaries daily and I'm sure the missionaries in the Kobe mission will welcome the new missionaries with welcome hearts and an eagerness to do the Lord's work. Thank you so much for taking care of our son's and daughters.

Thank you for all that you are doing to make room for other missionaries who may be coming out of harm's way. Thank you for the updates. We are reading them every day. Thank you especially for the way you are taking care of our children and helping them learn to be great missionaries. Our prayers are with you, your wife and family, the missionaries and all of the wonderful people of Japan.
