If you’re looking for how to help with relief efforts in Haiti, you can do no better than contribute extra funds to the LCMS’ own World Relief and Human Care. There’s a link on the main LCMS.org web site to donate or you can click here to go directly to the place where you enter your credit card number.
The World Relief and Human Care team already has extensive contacts in the area. They’ve put together an interactive map where you can locate various Lutheran congregations, seminary buildings and personnel and get a report on how they are doing. For instance, you can see where the Rev. Marky Kessa, the president of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Haiti is and learn that he is okay.
The Synod’s Communications team has already put up two stories about LCMS World Relief and Human Care efforts.
