Thank you for the concern you've shown and prayers that have been said in Chandler's behalf while these riots are taking place in Baltimore. Frederick is about 40 miles out of Baltimore and we don't feel that he is in harms way at this time. Our hearts and prayers go out to all of those who are being effected by these senseless acts of violence! Have NO FEAR, these hard working Missionaries will continue to keep the Lord's work moving forward regardless! Please continue to pray for all of the missionaries wherever they may be serving.
We received the following e-mail from Chandler's Mission President this morning which was reassuring and wanted to share it with all of you.
Maryland Baltimore Mission
April 28, 2015
There has been some concern regarding the safety of your missionaries here in the Maryland Baltimore Mission because of the ongoing riots in Baltimore.
We have been monitoring the situation and have been very careful to move all the missionaries away from potentially dangerous areas to apartments that are in safe areas. Our missionary safety has been our highest priority and all missionaries are safe.
We appreciate your prayers for our missionaries and for the people in Baltimore.
President Mark L. Richards
