On Saturday, September 10, LCC held a Basic LCMS L.E.R.T. training for new and recertifying team members at Concordia University Chicago in River Forest, Illinois. The training was led by Deaconess Kathy O’Day, LCC Director of Disaster Response.
There were a total of 14 in attendance from the following teams or churches in Illinois:

It is good to see how the disaster response ministry is continuing to grow with volunteers willing to share the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ in service to those suffering and in need.
