Last evening, President Kieschnick returned from Haiti. While in Haiti he was accompanied by representatives from LCMS World Relief and Human Care, Rev. Glenn Merritt, and LCMS World Mission, Rev. Dr. Jorge Groh and James Neuendorf, as well as Rev. Dr. Doug Rutt from Concordia Theological Seminary Fort Wayne (CTSFW). The entire group met with President Kessa of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Haiti (ELCH) and visited areas affected by the disaster.
This morning in chapel at the International Center in Saint Louis, President Kieschnick gave an update about Haiti. After chapel, he invited us to his office to tell us what he saw and to receive feedback from us in a couple of areas.
