President And First Lady Of Peru Thank LDS Church For Relief Assistance

Saturday, May 20, 2017
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provided relief assistance to Peru in the aftermath of devastating floods. Since the start of the year, Peru has been inundated with nearly 25 inches of rain due to the warming ocean waters, as reported by meteorologists. According to government officials, the floods – of historic proportions – have displaced tens of thousands of people and demolished and damaged more than 145,000 properties.
A state of emergency has been declared in more than 800 cities and towns throughout Peru.

In response to this state of emergency, more than 3,000 local members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as Mormons, have volunteered 12,000 service hours and prepared 55,7000 emergency relief kits. The LDS Church also donated more than 380 tons of relief supplies, which has benefited more than 103,000 flood victims.

On May 9, Peru’s President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski and First Lady, Ms. Nancy Lange Kuczynski, called President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, to offer thanks for all that The LDS Church had done during this emergency. The President and First Lady especially expressed thanks for the local members who so willing served where they were needed.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has a presence in more than 189 countries and territories across the globe, encourages members to serve others, as Jesus would do.

But, other than the obvious attempt by agenda-pushers ... (click for more)
