Dear Partners in Mission:
The rains continue in Sierra Leone and are predicted to continue throughout next week. Bishop Momoh has sent me pictures of the flooding and devastation. Due to deforestation and overbuilding on hill sides and in valleys, mudslides also endanger communities.
Thus far Bishop reports the church communities are doing well but are in need of funds to purchase supplies to distribute to those who have lost their homes and crops. We have already forwarded funds to the ELCSL thanks to our NT-NL Synod disaster relief fund. But there is continued need and our fund is getting low.
Please consider a donation. You can do so online at https://tithe.ly/give_new/www/#/tithely/give-one-time/1183611 and specifying disaster response in the drop down. Or you can send funds to the synod office: NT-NL Synod, ELCA | 680 Copper Canyon Rd | Argyle, TX 76226. #NTNL #ELCSL #InMissionTogether
