Over the course of three days in late February/early March, waves of severe weather swept through several states, leaving an unimaginable amount of destruction in their wake. Now that the skies have cleared, many communities are faced with the daunting tasks of repairing and rebuilding not only physical structures but their very lives.But, there is hope.
Responding to God’s call in Isaiah 58 for us to step into the broken places of the world to be “the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in”—to make God’s community livable again—we respond with prayers, support, and action. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) has already sent One Great Hour of Sharing funds to help with the efforts. Members of the National Response Team have also been dispatched to several communities to assist presbyteries in areas affected by this tragedy. The strength of PDA’s efforts depends greatly upon your financial support and your prayers for the restoration of lives and homes wrecked by this disaster.
