Update on Baltimore Riots

We received another letter from the Mission President updating us on the missionaries, included below.

I shared some photos on the blog the other day of the horrific acts of violence taking place in Baltimore but today I would like to share with you some more positive uplifting images that I found online this morning.

There are still wonderful, good people in this world!!

I love these images!

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your continuous prayers offered on behalf of your missionaries serving in the Maryland Baltimore Mission, our fellow saints, and the entire Baltimore community. In an effort to keep you updated regarding the safety of your missionaries, I want you to know that the missionaries are safe and in good spirits!

 Today has been a relatively quite day. We are keeping watch on tonight's curfew. We continue to monitor the situation, and have been very careful to move all the missionaries away from potentially dangerous areas to apartments that are in safe areas. The safety of your missionaries is and continues to be our highest priority.

 Again, we are so very grateful for your prayers offered for your missionaries and the people in Baltimore. We feel the blessings that come as a result and we are honored and blessed to serve with your great missionaries! They are truly the noble and great ones!

There are moments of violence in Baltimore -- but there are also moments of compassion as a young boy passed water out to Police officers.

A Pastor was quoted, "God is a God of justice, but he’s also the prince of peace."
