Prayers for Tornado Victims

We are fine. Thanks be to God - we are fine. However, others are not. The Jackson, TN, area was hit very hard by Tuesday night's tornadoes that came through the area. The major destruction was about 30-45 minutes north of us. One of our rival schools - Union University suffered major damage during the storms. It has been said that ever building on campus was affected somehow with the exception of the sports arena. You can look at these websites to see the damage that was done. and

One of my friends since Kindergarten lives close to the hospital that was hit. He and his family (with a 2 week old baby) lost the roof to their house while they were in the house. Many of the houses around him were either hit or destroyed. Please continue to pray for these victims as they struggle to get back on their feet.

I couldn't believe my eyes, viewing the destruction on the news. I will be praying for your friend's family. Those first weeks postpartum are difficult enough without a natural disaster thrown in. Do they need anything right now?
