South Pacific Cyclones - All Are Well and Safe in Fiji

President and I wanted to let you know that we are all well and safe in Fiji. Cyclone Tomas is in the South Pacific and is a category 4, but we have been very lucky that it is only brushing the edges of Vanua Levu and Viti Levu. It is a very slow moving cyclone (4 to 9 km an hour) so we have had plenty of time to prepare. All the missionaries have food and water and are obeying the curfew to stay off the streets. It hit Vanua Levu last night and will pass by Viti Levu tonight. This cyclone is approximately the size of Cyclone Mick that came through in December.

Warm regards,
President and Sister Ostler

LDS Church Offices:
The latest is that there is another cyclone that follows the other ones. Cyclones are generally active during the month of March. The latest news received from the Area Authority is that all missionaries are restricted to stay where their central locations or meeting places are at, and no one is allowed to be proselyting right now, they are all safe, and all communications are cut off from Fiji….
