Hurricane #2

September 6, 2017

Dear Parents,

We want to reassure you that every precaution is being taken to protect the Elders, Sisters, and Senior Couples in the Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission in anticipation of Hurricane Irma.

The Church is led by inspired counsels. Last evening our Area Seventy, Elder Stephen Thompson, Emergency leaders in Salt Lake City, and General Authorities met to discuss all the options available.

Following that counsel, President Garns met with the President of the Tampa Florida Mission, Elder Thompson, and local Stake Presidents. They counseled together to determine the best course of action.
Under inspiration, they collectively agreed the missionaries would be best protected gathering in selected church buildings, based on location and construction. Each church building will have supervision by an adult couple.

The missionaries are well prepared with supplies and are ready to evacuate as soon as instructed. Rest assured they will be moved to these selected chapels well before the storm hits.
As new information on the timing of these evacuations becomes available, it will be posted on a new FaceBook page for this purpose which you can access here:

Please know that we love your sons and daughters as our own.

President and Sister Garns

Sister Burdick
Referral Secretary
Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission
