14 January 2014
Dear Missionary Parents,
On Sunday, January 12, 2014, at approximately 12:00 a.m., Puerto Rico experienced an earthquake which registered 6.4 magnitude. Fortunately, the quake was out at sea. It was approximately 35 miles north of the Puerto Rico shoreline and 17 miles deep in the ocean.
There was no major damage. Some homes did receive minor damage such as broken windows, but we were very blessed as the entire Puerto Rico San Juan Mission experienced no damage and no one was hurt. There is no reason for concern on your part concerning your missionary. We know that Heavenly Father watches out for those who are performing His work.
We love our missionaries. We appreciate your prayers and support for your missionary and the mission. On behalf of Sister Smartt and me, we thank you.
Best regards to you and your family.
President Puerto Rico San Juan Mission
