Tulsa Tornado Round II

April 26 we saw our second tornado in the Tulsa area. This one was smaller, Trees fallen before and after EF-1, and a bit closer to our home, passing only a mile south of us. Thankfully there were only minor injuries. It caused some small structural damage.  Once again we were able to respond almost immediately. The next morning we helped begin the recovery process by clearing debris and cutting trees. We had the opportunity to pray with several home owners and share the love of Christ.
