Lutheran Disaster Response – 2019 Hurricane Relief
“Total destruction.” These are the words used over and over to describe the effects of a direct (and lingering) hit by Hurricane Dorian on the Grand Bahama Island and the Abaco Islands. And Dorian continued its devastation in the Carolinas. The full extent of the loss of life is not yet known, but heart-rending stories are already starting to emerge.
For information on the situation affecting our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Bahamas, visit the Facebook page of the Florida-Bahamas Synod. https://www.facebook.com/FlaBahSynod/. The Social Ministry Team has approved a donation of $1000 to Lutheran Disaster Response out of the Gift of Love Fund. Individual contributions may be made to Lutheran Disaster Response/2019 Hurricanes or directly to the Florida-Bahamas Synod Disaster Response Fund. https://www.elca.org/Our-Work/Relief-and-Development/Lutheran-Disaster-Response/Our-Impact/Hurricane-Response or https://fbsynod.com/.
Let us also pray for the safety of the rescuers and all offering aid, and that the healing Presence of God will give those affected peace and hope in this time of need.
