Dear Parents of Madagascar Missionaries,
We are aware that the tropical cyclone ENAWO is currently heading towards Madagascar.
All the missionaries have been accounted for and they are all aware that the cyclone is coming. They have been told to prepare 3 days (72 hrs) worth of food and water. Each apartment has 72 hour kits containing food, water and extra clothing in case of an emergency. We have encouraged them to be alert and to avoid any areas which are dangerous and may potentially flood. We are confident that our missionaries are safe and wise and will make the safe decision if the need arises. As the storm approaches we are in contact with the missionaries and are watching its movement.
We will continue to monitor the storm and stay in contact with the missionaries and parents and will send further updates as we receive them. At the moment the other islands (Mauritius and Reunion) have not been affected by the storm. We encourage you not to worry, we trust our missionaries and know that they will be careful and will make wise decisions. We know that the Lord will protect us throughout this time and that he will comfort you if you have any concerns.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email us.
