Typhoon Taguput Update - From Sister Maurer
Probably about time to give an update. Things are settling back to some kind of normality. Power is still out for many parts of the mission. So if you didn't get an email from your missionary this week then don't panic. It's just because very few Internet cafes have power. Power should start coming back on in the next couple of days, so hopefully you will hear from them this Monday. But I will keep you posted on that and give you an update on Sunday or Monday. All missionaries are safe, well and accounted for. We finally had transfers yesterday and we had over 120 missionaries here for one of the largest transfers yet. We had to close down Borongan Zone because most of those areas were hardest hit by Ruby. Altho' Borongan City is back on its feet and we have 4 elders back in there to continue contact with investigators and monitor the other areas in preparation for our full return. This coming week we have a Mission Tour with Elder Echohawk and his wife, so I bet your missionaries will have lots to talk about after that. Then of course it's Christmas.
