The Soup-To-Go Fundraiser was a great success. Thank you to everyone who bought soup and made donations. And a special thanks to those who made soup: Judy Wardo, Gloria Marchewka, Marilyn Feltz, Jenny Swensen, Bonnie Dale, Shelly Bychowski and Jonathan Stahlke

LCC Disaster Response

There have already been multiple long-track and catastrophic tornadoes in Alabama and surrounding southern states.  These have caused major damage, loss of life, and multiple injuries to people. Strong storms and tornadoes are predicted to continue in many southern states until the early morning hours.

Illinois and Indiana will also begin to experience wind gusts from 40-65 mph during the night, depending on location. If you see or hear of damage in your area, please let Jim and Deb Long know so LCC Disaster Response can assess if necessary. There is a chain gang that works on downed trees/branches. And they help with house flooding. 
They also have training available in Wisconsin, but also available online.  The Longs took the training last Sept in Elburn. It is a great bunch of people to work with. If anyone at Trinity is interested in getting involved or forming a group, please contact the Longs or Marna Rundgren.

Moren Lempas Update

Moren is the young lady that we support monetarily and in prayer. The 13-year-old lives in Indonesia. See a letter from Moren below.

Pray for Moren's spiritual growth as she: 

  • Develops an understanding of confession and forgiveness 
  • Develops a personal devotional and prayer time
