Elder Carreon et al prepared to "Hunker Down"

Texas McAllen Mission
To the Parents of Missionaries serving in the Texas McAllen Mission,

As we have continued to monitor Hurricane Ike, it has moved in a more north-easterly direction of our mission. We have evacuated the fourteen missionaries from the areas that we mentioned yesterday. It is anticipated the other missionaries will be able to remain in their own apartments. As the storm continues we will remain in communication with all of the missionaries to ensure their safety. Everyone is prepared with cell phones, full tanks of gas in their cars, food, and water. As of right now, there is no further need for further evacuations. We may lose power due to winds in some areas, but we expect that we will be able to continue communicating with you via email throughout the hurricane. Your missionary sons and daughters are the very best-thank you all for sending us such well prepared servants.

Best Regards,

President Gary F. Miller
Mission President
