Lives Turned Upside Down in Arkansas

The damage is incomprehensible. In the wake of an unusual December storm system, a resident in Trumann, Arkansas, takes a moment to figure out what's next in a neighborhood blown to pieces during a series of deadly tornadoes. You can help share the love and compassion of Christ during this tragic time.
Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) chaplains recently served in Northeast Arkansas (pictured here), and are currently ministering in Mayfield and Bowling Green, Kentucky.

This is all that's left. Keep residents in prayer as so many have lost literally everything, down to the foundation of their homes. Yet, reports from the tornado zone are also filled with hope. In the middle of a roofless home filled with debris, one Kentucky man sat down at the piano to play.

More than 90 people died across multiple states. Here in Arkansas, scenes like this are now common in the aftermath. The recovery and cleanup process will take years, but the pain of losing friends and family will never go away.
Prayer is simply speaking to God. Here, a couple of chaplains approach God together in prayer to lift up one man's needs.
The 30-plus tornadoes didn't just blow apart homes, but also large public buildings like this fire station.
