Dear MTS Community, 

I have been filled with grief over the destruction caused by the tornadoes over the weekend in our region. Many members of our community live and minister in places like Mayfield, Bremen, and Dawson Springs, that have suffered tremendous loss.

 Our prayers and support are with them, and we wanted to share a few opportunities to offer help:

This fundraiser on Go Fund Me supports MTS alum Tyler Lindsey (MDiv, 21) whose parsonage in Bremen, Kentucky was damaged in the storm. Lindsey serves at Breir Creek Cumberland Presbyterian Church. 

Taylor County Bank in Campbellsville, Ky., is accepting donations by mail to its fund for tornado victims. Its mailing address is P.O. Box 200 Campbellsville, Ky., 42719.

Kentucky Baptist Convention, an organization of Baptist groups, is raising funds to help its teams on the ground in affected areas of the state.

The Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund, created by Gov. Andy Beshear, is collecting donations for victims in the western portion of the state.

A Feeding America location in Kentucky is raising funds to help provide people with “ready-to-eat bags of food.”

The United Way of Kentucky is asking for donations to provide support services for families in the state who were affected by the tornadoes.

Please let us know if you are aware of other MTS alums who are impacted, or of other ways that the MTS community can be of support.

Your eager servant, 

Rev. Dr. Jody Hill

MTS President
