The miracle in the Tacloban Mission

All 204 Philippines Tacloban Missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints together with Elder & Sister Nielson, Elder & Sister Ardern, and President Jose Andaya & Sister Yolanda Andaya at the MTC Manila, Philippines.

Seven of the 21 Church missions in the Philippines were impacted by the storm, but all missionaries are safe. Missionaries in the hardest-hit areas have been evacuated to safer locations, including missionaries assigned to the Tacloban area. Those missionaries are now safely in Manila, staying in Church housing near the Manila Temple and missionary training center. Mission and area leaders will meet with missionaries in the coming days to evaluate their needs and determine future assignments. It is possible that some missionaries who are approaching the conclusion of their service may choose to return home. Missionaries in areas less severely affected by the storm will soon begin organizing to assist with relief efforts
