Pray for Oklahoma

     I’m sure you have all heard about the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma on Monday.  This EF5 tornado took the lives of 24 people, 7 of which were elementary school children, and completely devastated the town.

     Many people have expressed frustration with the saying “pray for Oklahoma,” but I for one, believe very much in the power of prayer, and would love nothing more than to cover Oklahoma in a blanket of it.  Prayer gives strength. Prayer gives power.  Prayer gives peace.   And I am quite sure that anyone who has taken the time to truly pray, has also offered to help. 
     Here is how you can get involved…

American Red Cross has several shelters open in Oklahoma and Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicles have begun delivering hot meals throughout the affected areas. The Red Cross is also working to link loved ones in Moore through a website called Safe and Well.Donate online or donate by phone at 800-RED-CROSS.

Salvation Army is activating disaster response teams and mobile feeding units to help residents and rescuers in Moore, Okla., as well as in other locations in the Plains and the Midwest that were impacted by tornadoes. Donate online or text STORM to 80888 to contribute $10 to the Salvation Army’s relief efforts (Standard text messaging rates apply) or make a donation by phone at 800-SAL-ARMY. If you are sending a check make sure you put the words “Oklahoma Tornado Relief” on the check. Mail it to The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 12600, Oklahoma City, OK. 73157.

Samaritan’s Purse mobilizes staff and equipment and enlists thousands of volunteers to provide emergency aid to victims of tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and other natural disasters in the United States. They often stay behind after our initial response to rebuild or restore houses for needy families.

World Vision relief teams are launching a response to deliver pre-positioned supplies — food kits, hygiene supplies, clean-up kits, blankets, and more — to help families and children hardest hit by the disaster.

Convoy of Hope has been sending relief supplies and coordinating response efforts non stop since the tornadoes hit Monday afternoon. Donate online or visit their website for more information.

Thank you so very much for your kindness and generosity.
