Last Wednesday night, Zion’s 6th—12th graders met and discussed the situation in Haiti. We spent time around: Daily life in Haiti prior to the earthquake and post earthquake, heard about the ELCA’s response to the earthquake, discussed theological impacts of the devastation (i.e. where was God in the situation, why do bad things happen to good people, and what should our response as Christians be).
From that meeting, our students feel called to help the ELCA response in a tangible way! So, on Wednesday, February 3rd, Zion students will put together health kits to send to Lutheran World Relief. Per their website they are very low on kits and need to replenish them ASAP.
