The striking eruption of a volcano near the Philippine capital of Manila is causing a spectacle of lightning and lava flows and has members and friends of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hunkering down in meetinghouses for safety.
Volcanologists are warning of the possibility of a larger, more explosive eruption even as the Taal volcano spews ash miles into the air and after it has caused dozens of earthquakes.
Meanwhile, Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, who is traveling with his wife, Mary, in the Philippines on a ministry and outreach visit, expressed concern about the threat to the people in the region according to a news release issued by Church Communications. He was scheduled to participate in a donation from the church’s Light the World humanitarian aid campaign, but the event was postponed.

Why did God put a volcano in Mr Cooks path?
