DEAR FRIENDS IN CHRIST:
As Chilean Lutheran pastors comfort suffering congregations and communities after one of the strongest earthquakes ever recorded in their country, LCMS World Relief and Human Care is walking with our brothers and sisters in Christ as they reach out in Word and deed.
LCMS recovery efforts continue in Haiti, yet this most recent disaster is another opportunity to share Christ’s mercy with Chileans who lost loved ones and homes. God’s timing is not ours. But all trials and struggles happen that He may ‘conform us to the image of his son’ (F.C., S.D. XI.48).
The need in Chile is enormous. Your gift of any size – $50, $100, or whatever blessing you can share – will help meet urgent needs through our work with the Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile, our LCMS partner church.
Rev. Matthew Harrison, Executive Director
