Japan Disaster Relief

On Friday, March 11, 2011, Japan experienced a catastrophic 8.9 magnitude earthquake, which spawned a deadly tsunami. According to news reports, the current death toll is over 2000 people and with thousands more missing or injured is expected to rise to 10,000. It has also caused tens of billions of dollars in property and economic losses. As a result, Saint Mark Lutheran School will be collecting donations at Wednesday’s chapel (March 16, 2011) for Japan disaster relief. The monies collected with go directly to LCMS World Relief and Human Care Japan Disaster Relief Fund – a ministry of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. You can also donate <a href=”http://www.lcms.org”>on-line</a> if you prefer. Thank you for your assistance with this important mission and please keep the people of Japan in your prayers.
