Record breaking flooding and tornadoes have devastated lives and communities in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma, Texas and Mississippi. Your hearts, like ours, have been broken as the fatalities increase. Levee breaches are causing flooding in Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Louisiana and Arkansas, which will further the destruction in residential areas and agricultural land, and result in greater loss of life.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is strongly engaged in responding to flooding and tornadoes in twenty presbyteries and six synods. Because of your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing, PDA has been able to respond immediately, offering initial grants and National Response Team members to assist with assessments, and will be able to respond throughout the long term recovery. Church damage grants have been disbursed to support affected churches’ continuing ministries, such as food pantries and emergency shelters, to be able to assist their communities in this time of great need.

Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
   I have called you by name, you are mine.
 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
   and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;

Isaiah 43:1-2

The needs for the response are great. God’s people are once again called on to stand in the "GAP"— Give. Act. Pray.

Give:Your gifts to OG100000 will ensure PDA has adequate resources to support the immediate and long term recovery. Gift of the Heart kits are a hands-on way to help others. You can also share this bulletin insert in church on Sunday. To be notified of volunteer opportunities as they become available, email pda.callcenter@pcusa.org to be placed on the interest list.
