Moore, Oklahoma: May 25- June 1,2013

After watching the events of May 20th unfold in Moore,Oklahoma, my friend Stacy and I decided that if it were meant to be, she and I would head to Oklahoma to help in the clean up.  God certainly worked out the details for us! As a result, we landed at Captiol Hill Baptist Church.  It is one of many churches in the area to offer relief supplies, a place to shower and get a meal.


Through out the week, Stacy and I picked up debris, travelled to Little Axe and McLoud to help organize relief supplies(This area was hit with a tornado on May 19.), went to the neighborhoods delivering door to door(or what was once door to door) Buckets Of Love that were filled with relief supplies, and delivered Chick-Fil-A sandwiches to all those who were working overtime to restore electricity and water...and we prayed for the children who are so traumatized.

These are just a "few" of the corporations who are involved in the relief efforts.  Kelloggs dropped off a ton of cereal at the church.  Chick-Fil-A also dropped off hundreds of sandwiches that we delivered to home owners going through the rubble of their belongings.  Tide (Procter and Gamble) was there to do laundry.


Our observation is that Oklahoma is filled with faithful and prayerful people.  It was good to be surrounded by them.

Another observation is that Oklahomans also have a great sense of humor!

When we left, we were completely unaware of the fantastic blessings God had  in store for us...Thank you Terry (Betsy), Hannah, Sarah, and Sam!

Thank you Clarence, Janie, and George (Linda)

And Jerry and Chloe...Stacy and I were prepared to camp out at the church in sleeping bags.  What a blessing to be the recipients of her love and nightly prayers.  God has gifted her with hospitality.
