It's time for an update on our missionary work here in the Baltimore area of the Lord's vineyard. The riots have calmed over the weekend and things are quiet. The safety of the missionaries continues to be our priority and after prayer and counciling with authorities we are sending our inner city missionaries back to their apartments today and they will start teaching again tomorrow! They will have an 8 pm curfew at our request to insure their safety.
We realize that many of you dedicated your fast yesterday in behalf of the mission and we feel that the Lord has answered your prayers. We are honored to serve with you and with your missionaries.

LDS missionaries in Baltimore safe as city calms
In response to rioting and violence that has shaken downtown Baltimore this week, six LDS missionaries serving in the area have been temporarily reassigned to nearby suburbs. The three companionships of elders had been serving in the Inner Harbor Ward and the Alameda Spanish Branch, both in the Baltimore Stake, and the Brooklyn Park Branch in the Annapolis, Maryland Stake.
