Middle East Crisis Donations

From Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, “I encourage the people of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to unite in prayer for the families of innocent civilians whose lives were lost, as well as pray for healing for all the injured, fearful and traumatized.” In response to the escalating violence in and around Gaza, Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton has extended a letter of support to Bishop Sani-Ibrahim Azar of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land. Lutheran Disaster Response has a history of providing support for our partners and anticipates answering calls for assistance when the time comes. Gifts to “Middle East Crisis” will be used to address humanitarian needs in the region.
