Pray for Oklahoma tornado victims

What a frightening 24 hours for our family.

We have heard from all eight families in Oklahoma. My grandson, Stacy Thornton, lives in Moore, Okla., with his wife and three teens, and the tornado just missed their home.

I heard from son Gary in Edmond, a town a little over from Moore. He’s OK but mourning the  Moore school with the parents who lost children.

Son Edward, in Dell a few miles from Moore, just missed it. I don’t know if he has broken pipes or what, but the basement flooded. He had just remodeled the house.

One family member’s sister-in-law is missing in Moore where it hit. Another family of hers — their house was devastated. Nothing left.

I have family in many of the small towns: Moore, Dell City, Yukon, Edmond, Chickasaw and other little bergs around Oklahoma City. I have been tracking the storms on the computer all day.

Please continue prayers for all the people in that area.
