As many of you have heard by now, Joplin, Missouri was hit by a devastating tornado last night, killing more than 90 and injuring 1,150 people. The pictures are absolutely devastating, and reports are saying that the town has been cut in half.
Last night I laid in my bed praying for the safety of friends and family, and those who were affected. The videos coming out today of last night are incredibly emotional, and it's hard to believe it happened so close to home. For me, the most devastating news was that the tornado damaged the hospital, and a nurse has reported that she witnessed a man being ripping from his room through the window. Can you even imagine?
I have included a few pictures and videos below. If you scroll all the way down, there is information on how you and all of us can help. Thank you for your prayers.
