Members Assist in United States Flooding Cleanup

Church members helped distribute more than 16 truckloads of food, water, cleaning kits, and hygiene kits to those affected by severe flooding across much of the upper midwestern United States. More than 600 members helped the affected communities clean up.

Following a week of heavy rains, the flooding killed more than 18 people, forced hundreds to evacuate, and damaged thousands of homes. More than a million residents were without electricity. All members and missionaries were reported safe, but a number of member homes were damaged and three Church buildings received minor damage.
