Dear Mada Parents--
This is Sister Woolley for President and Sister Foote, writing from my home in Provo. Apparently, an underwater cable has been damaged in the Indian Ocean which has taken out Telma, the phone and internet provider in Madagascar. The consequence of this is that your missionaries will not have access to email either to receive or send until the repairs are made which may be as long as 15 days. President Foote was afraid you would be concerned when you didn't hear from your missionaries this week, and ask me to send an explanation.
I hope I have email addresses for all the Mada parents. Please spread the word to any I may have missed.
Madagascar is a wonderful place to serve despite some occasional difficulties--we miss it already.
