Missoula mom lists son, family, on Typhoon Haiyan Red Cross list


MISSOULA, Mont. - A Missoula woman said she would love to fly a banner across the Philippines urging her son to please call home to mom.

Judy Johnson put the names and vital information of her 48-year-old son and his family on an American Red Cross list Tuesday. She hasn't heard from them.

Craig Johnson, his wife Lucy, their baby daughter Little Luce, and Craig's 28-year-old son Tom, live in the Philippines.

Judy's best friends, Sheri Larson and Peach Jenne, are praying with her. The Missoula women have been sharing ups and downs of life since they were little girls in the same northside neighborhood.

"I not only pray for my own," said Judy, "I pray for everybody, especially the children."

"Without faith," said Sheri, "I don't know how you can get through this."

"You have to believe that all things are possible" said Peach.
