In response to the devastation caused by the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma, the ELS Board for Christian Service has established a “Tornado Relief Fund” under the auspices of the World Needs Fund. Any and all funds received by the synod earmarked for “tornado relief” will be used to help those who have been affected by these storms. Financial donations can be made through the synod web site, evangelicallutheransynod.org or els.name ; or, if you prefer, you may send donations by check to: ELS World Needs Fund, 6 Browns Court, Mankato, MN 56001. Word from the area churches of our sister synod (WELS) is that while no church buildings were affected and there has been no loss of life from those among our fellowship, at least three families have lost their homes and many others are waiting to return home after evacuating to friends’ and families’ houses. Keep the people affected by this tragedy in your prayers; and any help we can provide will be a timely aid to those in need.
