The Rev. John Fale, associate executive director, LCMS’ Mercy Operations Group, is en route to Moore, Okla., where a May 20 tornado killed 24 people, injured hundreds and damaged thousands of homes and buildings. The homes of at least nine LCMS members were damaged. Fale discusses a meeting to be held May 23 with area church leaders and the LCMS Oklahoma District disaster coordinator so the “church’s work of mercy is connected to Word and Sacrament ministry of our local congregations.”
