Immanuel, Belvidere, Illinois, L.E.R.T. Chainsaw Volunteers Help a Homeowner with Tree Removal After Recent Storms
After church, a visitor to Immanuel, Belvidere, Illinois, asked if they knew anyone that could help with removing a tree in her yard that was damaged from recent storms, as she did not have the means to take care of it on her own.
Lutheran Early Response Team (L.E.R.T.) chainsaw volunteers Steve McElroy, Wes Johnson, Carl Jurgens, and Dick Staskal took care of cutting and removing the tree. She was very grateful for their willingness to serve, prompt response, and sharing the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ with her.
