The recent tornadoes that ripped through Alabama left several devastated victims. Unfortunately, over 200 of those victims died and most of the survivors are now rebuilding their lives. As far as I know many of the tornado hit areas received national or regional news coverage.
I am writing today about an area that did not receive much news coverage.
There is an area in Alabama named Clifton Corners which is around the Fort Payne and Rainsville areas. The above picture was taken minutes before Clifton Corners was hit. As I understand it the area got some local news coverage, but I do not even recall hearing about this area from the local Metro-Atlanta area news sources.
They could really use your help.
A good friend of mine named Greg London spent five to six years of his life helping and leading in the rebuilding of Lakeshore, MS in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. During that time Greg connected with hundreds of churches and thousands of volunteers. Rebuilding Lakeshore took over his life for that time and though his home is in the North Metro-Atlanta area he mostly lived in Mississippi. He has since set-up Rebuild Foundation, Inc. which is a non-profit company that assists in disaster relief and rebuilding.
Can you help?
Right now, Greg is working with Rainsville First Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist Church, in Rainsville, AL. There are teams of volunteers coming and going from churches, colleges, etc. If you would like to schedule a time to come and work either with a group or as an individual they could use your help. They can also use donations to help the rebuilding of the lost homes and such.
If you want to get connected click CONTACT, fill out the form and I will get you in touch. Below are some of the pictures sent to me of some of the tornado damage.
Thanks for your prayerful consideration.
