On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey became the strongest hurricane to make landfall in the United States in over a decade. The Hurricane has left in its wake a path of devastation that cuts deep in the heart of Texas. Called to help? Here’s what you can do…
1. Pray for God to have mercy on us in Texas. Thank him for the miraculous preservation of so many lives. It is not lost on us just how much more tragic this could have been. Pray for a speedy and full recovery, that families, homes, businesses, schools and communities can come back stronger and better than ever.
2. Give in support of the relief efforts here in Texas. You may give funds directly to a congregation involved in recovery, or you may choose to contribute the the Lutheran Disaster Assistance Fund. All donations can be sent to LDA, c/o St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 8300 C Ave. NE, Marion, IA 52302
3. Get Involved by volunteering with the recovery efforts. We are currently preparing needs assessments in and around the Coastal Bend communities and looking to set-up a recovery center at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Victoria. Consider sending a team of volunteers to help these communities get back on their feet after this tragic disaster.
