Current financial gifts given through the Missouri District have increased to $150,137.30 (12/15/11). These gifts have been received by the Missouri District to aid Immanuel Lutheran Church to provide needed assistance to Joplin residents.
Trent Davis, Immanuel’s Director of Disaster Response sent the following: “The Lord has blessed us with the ability to get five decent sized projects under roof before the weather has gotten too ugly here, however we have only a few teams committed from Jan-Feb. We need additional teams. All help will be greatly appreciated. Types of skills we are looking for include: electricians, plumbers, HVAC, drywall, painters and interior trim. Not everyone on a team needs to be skilled but we need enough skilled folks to give direction to the willing. Thanks and Blessings!”
Pastors, if you are willing, please publicize this to your congregation.
