TORNADO UPDATE: We are aware of severe damage to at least two LCMS congregations following the rash of tornadoes that swept through the Midwest Sunday. Our Savior in Washington, IL, and St. John in New Minden, IL. Initial reports are that no LCMS members were injured by the storms. However, the homes of at least 17 LCMS members from those two congregations and Mount Calvary and Redeemer, both in Peoria, IL, sustained severe damage, according to initial reports. LCMS Disaster Response officials are reaching out to district officials and determining how best to respond. Please keep all of those who were affected by these tornadoes in your prayers. The North Wisconsin District will continue to keep its members updated through this website as more information becomes available. Thank you for your compassionate hearts.
PHILIPPINES: TYPHOON HAIYAN
President Harrison shared the below information:
On November 11th, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms on record, slammed into the Philippines.
According to the Rev. James Cerdenola, president of The Lutheran Church of the Philippines (LCP), three LCP congregations were in the hardest hit region and their members have been severely affected. Early reports are that a church and parsonage were completely destroyed as were the individual homes, crops and livestock. The LCMS Disaster Response has been activated under the leadership of Director Glenn Merritt. We have committed up to $100,000 in an initial disaster grant and an additional $50,000 matching grant to our partner churches in the International Lutheran Council.
