Please pray for all those who have lost their homes in the recent tornado struck path of destruction through central Illinois, and parts of Missouri and Indiana. My heart lies especially with our own church’s members in Washington, IL where the touchdowns caused enormous amounts of damage. I was told by one Sunday School teacher that he sat with the students as the tornado passed over the roof of the church, sounding like a railroad engine driving over the building. They later found that a family’s house across the street had been demolished. During this time of year, I know it’s easy to think of Thanksgiving and the panoply of family events rushing toward us. But please keep those families in mind whose are suffering loss.
