Lutheran Church Charities was invited to present Basic LERT training in the Nebraska District on Saturday October 26, 2019. The training was led by Deaconess Kathy O’Day, LCC Director of Disaster Response and hosted by Christ Lutheran Church LERT in Lincoln, Nebraska.
There were a total of 18 in attendance from several churches in Lincoln and Fremont, Nebraska. All of the volunteers present have assisted through their churches in many different ways since the massive flooding that occurred this spring in their area.
It is good to see how the disaster response ministry is continuing to grow in the LCMS with volunteers willing to share the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ in service to those suffering and in need.
LCC never charges those we serve. We are able to do that with the support of donors. If you would like to help us, please consider a donation to LCC Disaster Response Fund.
