This will be just a quick post to let you know that we are fine. Our Mobile Free Thrift Center sustained some “dimples” from hail.
It could have been so much worse, and we’ve seen a lot of hail damage.
We’ve been able to help some families needing clothing and in one case, we helped a couple whose camper was lifted in the air spinning and they were thrown out of it. They sustained lacerations but were not seriously hurt. The man actually had his shoes sucked right off of his feet. Yes, we were able to help him with some shoes.
Tomorrow we will meet with the Red Cross and other agencies to co-ordinate our efforts to make sure we are meeting all of the need and that people know where to go for help.
Housing for the displaced is a big deal because there is such a severe housing shortage. Please pray with us that housing will be found for all of those who lost their housing to the tornado.
