Disaster Relief Distributed: Tornados Leave Paths Of Destruction In The Midwest
Midwest Mission Distribution Center
The last week of March, deadly tornadoes ripped through most parts of the Midwestern United States, leaving paths of destruction, and tattered evidence of a life before the storms.
If you live in the Midwest, tornadoes are one of the things you know is a possibility, but never want to believe will upend your life.
Many of us have lived through tornadoes, and have seen the effects of the dangerous winds, but pray it will not be something we have to know the effects of personally. But, that last week of March, many Midwesterners faced the grave reality of what that deadly twister of storms can do to a community.
On March 24, more than 20 tornadoes swept through parts of Mississippi, including an EF-4 tornado, that has sadly taken the lives of at least 26 people. On March 31, more storms rolled into the Midwest, with tornadoes touching down in Iowa, Arkansas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Indiana. On April 4 and 5, another line of severe weather barreled in, affecting several of the areas that had previously been hit by the March 31 tornadoes.
So many people have lost homes, vehicles, and cherished items that carry sweet memories. Most heart breaking, they have lost loved ones. We mourn with those who are mourning, and lift up prayers of comfort, peace, and protection. Midwest Mission has the opportunity to assist in the relief process — YOU have the opportunity to partner with us in those efforts.
