What a blessing to have the fellowship of Christians gather together on Saturday, September 2, 2018 to clean up after a F2 tornado blew through the city of Brownsville and the surrounding communities. Over 85 volunteers worked on the St. Paul church property sawing up tree limbs and picking up the logs, branches and leaves. Volunteers also reached out to church members and people in the community who suffered tornado tree damage. Thank you for to the volunteers who worked to make the day a success and to those who support WELS Christian Aid and Relief with their gifts and their prayers. The rains came down all around the Brownsville area, we thank God for holding the rains in check where our volunteers were working. We also thank God for watching over the travels of those who came from near and as far away as Stillwater, Minnesota to help. We thank God for keeping all safe from the dangers of working in a disaster area, for the fellowship of the believers and for the opportunity to share our faith with those who ask us why we have come to serve.
Pastor Richard Warnecke and Pastor Robert Hein share the ongoing work of WELS Christian Aid and Relief after two epic hurricanes cause severe damage. We continue to keep our brothers and sisters in Christ, who have suffered loss, in our prayers. And, we offer assistance of help with clean up, both financially and with groups of working volunteers.
