LDR Responds to U.S. Tornadoes

Lutheran Disaster Response is working with relief agencies in areas of the central US impacted by severe storms and a significant outbreak of tornadoes over the last few days. LDR supports both immediate relief and long-term efforts.


Please pray for the communities who were impacted by these destructive tornadoes. May God’s healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need. Pray that God will deliver comfort to those who mourn the loss of loved ones and strength to those who are working diligently to care for affected communities.


Gifts to “U.S. Tornadoes” will be used to assist those affected by tornadoes until the response is complete.
