Minor damage here, major elsewhere

Foundry's bell tower had minor damage.

The wood looks old but it still feels solid.

It had just been painted a few months ago.

So the damage here at Foundry is minor. And our rain spouts which tend to clog ran freely throughout the storm.

We are thinking about and praying for our friends in New Jersey and New York. One of our staff members has family living in Zone A in New York City. She spoke to them for a few minutes yesterday before the phone service cut out but has not been able to connect since.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is already responding. We can help. Text RESPONSE to 80888 to give a $10 donation to support disaster response. We can also donate online.

I suspect there will also be a need for work teams. We are waiting to hear from Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM).
