March 17, 3:30pm (NZ time)

Within the last hour the Vanuatu Port Vila Mission President, Larry Brewer, made contact with missionary leaders on the island of Tanna. The missionary leaders confirmed that all 11 missionaries are accounted for and safe. The Church is chartering a small plane tomorrow from Port Vila to Tanna. Two missionaries will be on board with food and other supplies to give much needed relief to those suffering from the effects of Cyclone Pam. The plane will also be used to bring the 11 missionaries on Tanna back to Port Vila.


  1. This is such a relief! My heart has been aching for the parents who have been waiting to hear that their missionary is safe!

  2. Wonderful communications from the Church for familie - thank you for keeping everyone updated so effectively

  3. Such wonderful news. I have been so worried about those serving there. My daughter is serving in Vila but had been on Santo and Tanna as well. So relieved.
