How Missionaries Serving in North Carolina Were Prepared for Hurricane Florence + Where They Are Now

“When [Hurricane Florence] did come, I felt that our missionaries were feeling quite peaceful and well-prepared,” North Carolina Raleigh Mission President Matthew S. Holland told the Church News on Thursday.

The mid-summer skies were likely sunny and clear when newly arrived North Carolina Raleigh Mission President Matthew S. Holland conducted his first round of zone conferences.

Hurricane Florence was still months away, “but I felt a need to spend a fairly significant amount of time [during the zone conferences] on emergency preparedness.”

Under President Holland’s direction, the missionaries were soon building 72-hour kits, stocking up on drinking water, and developing communication and evacuation plans.
