An LCMS Disaster Response team has been on the ground in Puerto Rico this past week as part of an initial assessment trip.
LCMS Disaster Response
Despite the challenges of blocked roads and collapsed bridges, Lutherans will bring Christ’s mercy to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.
Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) is also providing aid through its Kaleidoscope Fund.
The utter devastation in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria in September 2017 calls to mind the caring Christians who give so graciously, ensuring Christ’s mercy comes swiftly to those affected by catastrophe.
Also in its regular meeting, the Board considered ways to increase effectiveness, received reports and took routine actions.
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and local districts will continue providing long-term recovery and care for disaster victims, including those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
