Words are inadequate to describe our sadness and sorrow as we saw up close the devastation caused by the tornado. We filled our trucks with items from the trailers and contacted families in the neighborhoods, those living in hotels and surrounding areas, giving them cash, Walmart gift cards, food, clothes, and other items. We prayed with them and left tracts to encourage their hearts.
These pictures will give you a glimpse of what we saw and experienced.
My thoughts go back to Horatio Spafford, a successful lawyer and businessman in Chicago with a lovely family – a wife, Anna, and five children. They were not strangers to tears and tragedy. He and his wife lost all five children. He wrote “It Is Well With My Soul” during the tragedy. “When peace like a river attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll,
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul.”
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts ♥️for your love, prayers and tangible donations. This trip would not have been possible without you. May God bless you one hundredfold. “…when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!” Matthew 25:40.
