No matter where disaster strikes — whether in Delmont, S.D., or Washington, Ill. — LCMS Disaster Response, districts and individual members work together to bring the love and mercy of Christ to those who are hurting.
As visits are made in the wake of disaster, the mercy and love of Christ are brought again to those who are suffering.
God help us. He does, and He will. End times? Yes, indeed. “God is faithful,” as the apostle says (1 Cor. 1:9). And this faith in Christ is “a living, busy, active, mighty thing.”
This year’s conference, Oct. 6-9 in St. Louis, brought together some 100 district disaster-response coordinators, pastors and laypeople involved in disaster work.
KFUO Radio host Andy Bates talked on Oct. 7 with the Rev. Terry Makelin, the Rev. Tom Heren and the Rev. Seth Clemmer about the life and mercy work of their congregations in the wake of disaster in their communities.
The massive amount of rain has burst dams and blocked roads. Pastors Denninger and Meyer discuss the differences between this disaster and Hurricane Hugo as they determine how to best serve the needs of the community and help with recovery.
