It's a Twister!
It just skipped and bounced right through. Unbelievable damage right next to no damage at all. Minor injuries but no deaths. Homes damaged, some destroyed. Lives changed forever. Opportunities for impact now available.
"What do you need?" That's what I asked the Office of Emergency Management person Friday. They were getting things together and were not sure of any immediate needs so I left my number. They have mentioned the flooding damage in Haskell and we are in the process of assessing the needs there to see what we can do.
It is truly amazing the power of those storms. It is amazing to see the destruction and how random it is. It is amazing that God spared so many and that things were not worse than they are. We count our blessings but pray for those who are affected. I look forward to the opportunities to serve those affected by the storms and truly show them God's love in practical ways. We actually get to DO church and not just say we are a church.
It's time to invest ourselves and see the changes God will make.
