ELC’s Rapid Response to Communities Devastated by Recent Tornadoes

April 6, 2012

In less than 24 hours following the tornadoes in Dallas-Fort Worth, Pastor Mark “Dean” Blum was on the ground meeting with local officials to determine how we could best support relief efforts. And in less than 48 hours following the tornadoes, we had dispatched a team of over 50 Servant Leaders to aid with area clean-up efforts.

Gov. Rick Perry toured the town of Lancaster by air Thursday and spoke to local officials. He suggested Texas would ask for federal disaster relief for areas hit by the storm.

On Good Friday, our team will also be serving in Lancaster, supporting the clean-up efforts and providing food to recovery workers and volunteer responders.
