    Des Moines IA Clean-up Underway


    Well, the damage has been done and the clean-up has begun.  And it is going to be a long time until people's


    lives return to a semblance of normal.  You can see examples of how much was destroyed and the magnitude of


    the destruction from even a "small" flood.  Our hearts go out to the hundreds of refugees downstream from


    us.  And we visit with the leaders of a fund raising effort, the 2008 Iowa Disaster Fund, to learn how


    individuals throughout the world can send help that will go to individuals suffering from not only 500 year


    flooding but lethal tornadoes destroying entire towns in 2008.


    If you'd rather not watch the video but you'd like to make a contribution to the 2008 Iowa Disaster Fund,
