You Can Help Through the District’s Tornado Relief Fund
A line of intense storms that swept across the South and Midwest on March 31 spawned as many as 50 tornadoes, devastating numerous communities in the Mid-South District.
For millions across several southern and midwestern states, the afternoon and evening of March 31, 2023 will not soon be forgotten. Storm systems along a vast front rapidly intensified and dropped tornadoes at an alarming rate. In the Mid-South District, communities hit especially hard were Little Rock and Wynne in Arkansas, as well as the town of Covington and rural McNairy County in west Tennessee. Several LCMS church members in those communities were among the many whose homes were completely lost or severely damaged. Sadly, the devastating storms also resulted in the loss of at least 15 lives in Arkansas and Tennessee, with even more deaths in the states north of our district.
While it seems that we find ourselves responding to disasters like these far too often, the compassion shown by God’s people for those in need never wanes. Therefore, in the wake of yet another terrible tragedy, we ask you to help in the following ways:
PRAY — Please pray for all those who have been impacted by these storms and for the efforts to restore their broken lives and communities.
GIVE — Gifts to the Mid-South District’s Tornado Relief Fund will be used for relief efforts in the tornado-ravaged communities. If you or any member of your congregation would like to contribute to this fund, you may make a gift online or by check payable to the Mid-South District Office / 1675 Wynne Road / Cordova TN 38016. Please note “Tornado Relief Fund” on any gifts sent by check. When donating online, please designate your gift for the Tornado Relief Fund.
