LCC Disaster Response L.E.R.T. Volunteers Deploy to Olive Branch, Mississippi to Help Families Recover from Extensive Tornado Damage
210 Homes Damaged or Destroyed in DeSoto County
“For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) Lutheran Early Response Team (L.E.R.T.) chainsaw teams have been invited by Angela Fowler, Congregation President from Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Olive Branch, Mississippi, to help impacted families recover from devastating damage as a result of back-to-back tornadoes that hit the same county.
Join LCC in keeping our volunteers and this community in your prayers as they begin to work through the recovery process.
LCC never goes where we are not invited. We NEVER charge those we serve. We pick up all of our travel, lodging, and meal costs. We put boots on the ground within 24 hours (often fewer) from the time we get the invite.
Please consider a donation to the LCC Disaster Response General Fund or LCC Disaster Response Equipment Maintenance & Fuel Expense Fund so that we may continue to show the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need.
Your prayers, support, and involvement help Make A Difference – in the name of Jesus to those in need.

Your Donations Enable LCC to Continue to Send Thousands of Dollars to Haiti Mission Partners for Immediate Food Needs
Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) continues to work through our Haiti Mission Partners, Ministry in Mission and Mission: Haiti to send emergency funds to Haiti during a current critical humanitarian crisis due to the political unrest.
Thanks to your generous donations, LCC is able to continue to send thousands of dollars to our mission partners to purchase immediate food needs for the most vulnerable.
Thanks to great partners like Lutheran Church Charities, last week Ministry in Mission purchased, packed and delivered food in the mountains of Haiti. We had enough food to feed 50 families or 200 people; 450 showed up. Never enough!
Ministry in Mission
Please prayerfully consider making a monetary donation to enable Lutheran Church Charities to continue to send emergency funds to Haiti to help provide food for Haitian adults and children.
Thirty dollars will buy enough rice, oil, maggi, canned fish, spaghetti, and soup to feed one person two meals a day for three weeks. LCC Haiti mission partners are helping the most nutritionally vulnerable but need financial support to do so.
Join LCC as we pray for the protection of the Haitian people and our mission partners, and for peace in Haiti.
