Typhoon Update

Quick update: we have been in contact with all Catarman missionaries and they are all doing good. Currently staying in the chapel where they have running water and power thru a generator. They have also been given the option today to travel down to Calbayog (about 2hours) to do emails home. So you may get a surprise email. We are considering options on whether to move them out to other areas until full power is established (could be anything from 1 week to 2 months). We will know more in the coming days. They do have access to water thru community pumps for washing and there are places for them to purchase bottled water for drinking. Next week they will be coming down to Tacloban for Zone Christmas Conference, so by then a full, longer term, plan will be in place. Right now they are finding opportunities to help in clean up and service. We love them and understand and appreciate their strength at this difficult time for all in Northern Samar.   --Sister Maurer
