PHOTOS: BGEA Chaplains Ministering in Mississippi

By   •   May 12, 2017

Crisis-trained chaplains with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team are offering emotional and spiritual care in Durant, Mississippi, in the wake of a deadly April 30 tornado.
The storm knocked out power and flattened dozens of homes, while damaging hundreds more.
Chaplains are ministering alongside sister ministry Samaritan's Purse to bring the love of Jesus.
Praying with one homeowner.
Chaplains presented this homeowner with a copy of the Billy Graham Training Center Bible.
"People are eager to share their stories and are very thankful to receive prayer, a word of encouragement, a hug and the news of Jesus Christ," chaplain coordinator Kate Poll said. "We so appreciate your prayers."
