GREENFIELD TORNADO: Update from Rev. Dr. Steven Turner, IDW President: Brothers and Sisters in Christ; Greenfield, Iowa has recently been devastated by a powerful tornado that caused significant damage to homes, infrastructure, and lives. Families have lost their homes, cherished belongings, and, tragically, some have lost loved ones. Thankfully, Immanuel Lutheran Church in Greenfield did not sustain damage.
