“Strength for Hard Times”.

“I’m Monica Carrasco and I will to tell my story and that of many people in my city:

The last flood of the Uruguay River reached 16 meters on December 24, 2015, the day of Christmas Eve. It was the saddest Christmas of my life and that of many others as well.

Pastor Fabian Hill visited us during their surveys of the affected areas and then, he and people of the Lutheran Church assisted us with a lot of things ( clothes, foods, etc) and they  still do today. But this help was not only material, also brought faith and hope.concordia

The people of the Lutheran Church brought gifts for the children also, and they been able to celebrate Epiphany.  We are entirely grateful for so much love that they have had with us. “

All people affected by that floods received our booklet “Strength for Hard Times”.


Today, Monica is participating at the church in different activities.  She will be a new member soon!
