So there was no email from Jaclyn this week. We weren't really worried. Then we learned from a neighbor that the Philippines are experiencing severe flooding this past week. The Cavite Province has been declared a calamity area. We're not really sure where she is because she was going to be transferred this week, but the mission blog tells us that all the missionaries are safe in their apartments with running water and electricity and they will stay inside until it is safe to go out.
Sounds like Sister Hamm will have a LOT to report next week - hopefully with some pictures and good news about the wonderful filipino people she has grown to love!
