    The immediate need for Hurricane Harvey relief is monetary - most of the roads are impassible for deliveries at this time.

    We are recommending that you donate through the Texas District of the LCMS - www.txlcms.org - where 100% of your gifts will go directly to meet the needs of those who are suffering from this major storm.

    Rev. Steve Misch is the Director of Disaster Response for the Texas District. I was in contact with him just this morning. They will begin to visit and assess the affected areas of southeast Texas tomorrow. He indicated that the relief could take years in order to help the area fully recover (think Katrina on steroids). After their initial assessment, the District will be meeting with Synod and other relief agencies to complete their plan of action.

    The goal will be establish a single hub for all relief efforts to be channeled. Once this has happened, Bethel will begin collecting according to the needs identified. Keep watching our website for updates!
