The tornado that passed through southeast Virginia yesterday hit just 30 minutes away from my home. I have several friends who work in that area and were there when it hit. Their buildings that were damaged, but they are okay. Praise God, there are no fatalities listed yet!
Please pray for those affected. The clean-up is going to be a long, arduous process. Over 100 homes are totally destroyed, and many more damaged. More than 200 injuries (the hospital was hit, but stayed open to receive patients).
And please pray that God's people will join together to accomplish His work and reach out to those in need. May we glorify His Name through this tragedy.
