Typhoon In-Fa Update

This morning’s update is one of those “good news-bad news” situations with a really bad news added in. The bad news is that the storm has intensified faster than expected and is now officially a typhoon with winds at about 65mph. The good news is that it has tracked a little further South and is predicted to miss Guam, the Marianas and Yap. However, this is really bad news because it looks like this means it will be (and may already be) hitting the lagoon islands and outer islands of Chuuk. Please keep the people of Chuuk in prayer, especially PIU coordinator there, Iotaka and Vivianne Choram and family, along with our partners at ECC, FCC, BCS and many friends and colleagues there. They are still recovering from the last typhoon. Typhoon tracks can change drastically so I will post updates as I can. Pray for Chuuk!
