The Lutheran leaders met with Stephen Unger, a chaplain with the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), who has been working the site of World Trade Center destruction since Sept. 11.Unger
, who attends an LCMS congregation
on Long Island, described the grisly scene for the Lutheran leaders.Later, he
escorted Anderson, Kieschnick, Bouman, Benke and LDR representatives for an exclusive visit to the World Trade Center site for a first-hand look at the rescue and recovery effort.
After the site visit, Furst said one thing he
will remember is the smell in the air.
"I was walking through the valley of the shadow of death" he
said in an interview.
