KFUO Radio’s Andy Bates hosted a discussion on May 17 about the LCMS Disaster Response campaign to raise funds for Camp Courage supplies. Rev. Ross Johnson, director, LCMS Disaster Response; Rev. Michael Meyer, manager, LCMS Disaster Response; Gail Pawlitz, educator and editor; and Leah S. Sieveking, LCMS Mission Advancement talk about the new Camp Courage resources to serve children affected by disaster.
The volunteer-run program uses Scripture, skits and crafts to help kids build trust, restore hope and renew their faith in Christ during and after periods of suffering — bringing comfort through God’s Word. Camp Courage is a five-day program that bears costs — crafts, snacks, take-home books and keepsakes.
