The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) Disaster Response will provide matching funds with this grant to 20 congregations to establish a disaster response equipment trailer for use in their respective districts. These equipped trailers provide all the necessary tools to get to work immediately upon arrival in a disaster area. In this way, they aren’t a burden to those affected, but rather are able to bring relief and comfort. Currently, there are over 12,000 individuals from across the LCMS who have received Lutheran Early Response Training (LERT) and the number grows every month.
