On the morning of February 6, Turkey and surrounding regions were rocked with a magnitude 7.8 earthquake and a series of aftershocks that are among the strongest to hit the region in more than 100 years. So far, more than 40,000 people have died and tens of thousands are injured.

As a ministry dedicated to sharing the Gospel with those who need to hear it, Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) is positioned to respond to challenging events like this by providing the hope of Jesus. In addition to ongoing mass communications programs that share the hope and comfort of Christ throughout the region, LHM is incorporating a holistic approach to sharing God's love by attending to people's physical and emotional needs as well as their spiritual needs.

LHM is currently gathering emergency supplies to distribute to people affected by the earthquake. Staff and volunteers in the region are collecting items of immediate need such as water, food, baby food, baby bottles, diapers, hygiene products, sleeping bags, blankets, clothes, gloves, shoes, and tents that will then be sent to a partner church in Turkey for distribution to people in need. Often the recipients of holistic efforts like this desire to learn more about God through Christians moved to reach out in love.

God and His Word are a refuge during uncertain times. Make a gift today to help us share God's love with hurting people in this region who need it now more than ever.
