As the trailer full of supplies was unloading at the Fruitvale Church of Christ, in Fruitvale, TX, another load was pulling away from our Nashville warehouse to be unloaded first thing tomorrow morning at the Durant Church of Christ building, in Durant, MS. Holmes County, and Durant were the hardest hit by tornadoes that touched down in Mississippi April 30th. One death was reported, and 20,000 were without power throughout the state. 10 tornadoes were reported.
Please pray for the victims of these tornadoes as they begin clean-up across Mississippi.
Our Associate Director in Missouri has had one meeting today around noon with a congregation in the south western corner of Missouri where the flooding has taken place. Over 200 homes have been flooded. The town of Noel, Missouri is like an island. He is having another meeting with a second congregation this evening at 6pm. They might be able to work together at a central distribution point to help the areas flooded in a fairly widespread area. More will follow on what’s being done in southwest Missouri.
