After the Alabama tornados hit, there were many families left with no home, and even lost family members. My heart broke when I heard of the Lee family, who have 13 children. While being hit badly by a tornado, the father threw his body over some of his children to protect them and he was killed. A few of the other children were badly injured and are in the hospital.
Will you please join with me in praying for this family, who have lost not only their home, but have lost a husband and father?
I also ask you mothers to consider giving to this mother of 13, who just lost her husband. Instead of asking for a gift for mother's day, think of this widow and how we can help to serve her during this time. There is a place you can donate funds to their family if you feel led to do so by clicking on the link above.
There are a few other families who have lost everything, including the Crawford family who I have met personally and admire very much. This was their home after the tornado hit.
Kelly Crawford is an inspiring mother and woman of God, and you can read about their experience here. You can also donate to the Crawfords by clicking on the same link above.
I know the Lord is working through this tragedy, and it is so encouraging to see the Body of Christ responding so faithfully.
Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. Isaiah 1:17
