As the disaster continues to unfold in the South Carolina and surrounding states, our thoughts and prayers are with the people in the midst of the flooding. MDS representatives are in touch with churches and our contacts in the area and other faith-based organizations. We are watching and gathering information and taking appropriate steps to determine where and when we might respond. MDS personnel will investigate in South Carolina the week of Oct. 12.
More information will be posted when available. Contributions are being accepted and designated as “Carolina Floods”.
