Hurricane Ike News From The Mission President

Texas McAllen Mission

To the Parents of Missionaries serving in the Texas McAllen Mission,
I am writing in concern of Hurricane Ike. We are well aware of the storm and have been monitoring it very closely. We will continue to watch this on an hourly basis. In event of an evacuation your son or daughter will temporally be located in a safe place in the mission. If an evacuation is necessary we will keep you updated. Your missionaries are in good hands. We will keep you updated daily.
All missionaries as of this moment are prepared, their automobiles have full tanks of fuel and each has an emergency preparedness kit.
At the present time there is a likelihood that all of the missionaries in and around the Corpus Christi area could be evacuated as early as tomorrow. Preparations are now in place for such an event.

Thank You,

Gary F. Miller
President Texas McAllen Mission
