Touring the areas of flooding
following a Nor'Easter in the south.
Hurricane Joaquin went out to sea.
But the area had 18 inches
of rain in about 12 hours.
Then it kept raining.
Such a loss.
In those moments the blaring need
is really apparent in our world that washes away.
The synodical helpers
looking for ways to bring help.
L to R-Husband John- the Southeastern District President,
Rev. Michael Meyer from the LCMS Disaster Response Team
and Rev. Christopher Burger-
Pastor at Holy Trinity in Columbia, South Carolina.
Reviewing the stories and connections.
Life dumped on the side of the road.
The water was rushing over this bridge
when the owner of this property woke up.
A neighbor was blaring a truck horn
to wake up the neighbors.
This fairly small body of water had
become a raging river
that completely covered the bridge.
Rev. Paul Sizemore (right) listens to the story
at the home of members.
Paul is pastor at Mt. Olive-Irmo,
Floods do not leave much
behind that is not ruined.
Time to just listen to the stories
of what happened,
how they managed to get out,
and what they need NOW.
Thank you Lord, for organizations
that bring immediate help
and the preparations to be ready for
TIME of NEED.
