PLEASE PRAY FOR OKLAHOMA

Five confirmed tornadoes hit parts of


Oklahoma late yesterday afternoon.


There were 8 confirmed deaths...60 injured


and the Governor expects that to rise today.



Before I go any further please pray for a


family that lived outside of Piedmont.


The mother is expecting a child and she took


cover inside her home with 3 small children.


The mother is in the hospital...her 5 year old


daughter is in the hospital in critical condition...


their 15 month old son died in the hospital


last night and their 3 year old son is missing.


Their home was one of several, custom built homes


that were reduced to the slab in some cases.


These homes were built around a little lake and


from the pictures shown at least one third of the


lake is covered with wood splinters and boards


and this is what they are sifting through in boats,


to try to find this precious 3 year old. They searched


until 1130 pm last night and were back at day light


to search again.


The housing addition was called Falcon Lake.


This family has suffered the worst of worst


nightmares. Their name is the Hamil family, if


I spelled their name right and they say there is a lot


of information from their family and friends on


face book...I don't do face book, so I don't know.


The 3 year old missing boy is named Ryan Hamil.



Three people died driving a long I-40.


Many, many animals died...one miracle...the


tornado picked up a horse and dropped him


in an above ground swimming pool 150 feet


later. The horse they say is fine but I bet


he will be very spooked when a


thunderstorm comes...the water in the pool,


probably kept his legs from breaking.



I was reading a comment that Becca left me


in regards to the Joplin tornado.


She said this seems to be the year for people


dying in tornadoes. She is right. I cannot


remember a year that so many died related


to tornadoes...especially with advanced


technology to just about tell you the minute it


is coming to your town.


One home was a 3 story reduced to the front


ground level where the safe room is. The


owner and his family walked out.


One home burned to the ground a year a go


and they just finished rebuilding it and the


tornado leveled it.



These tornadoes also caused one death in


Kansas and three in Arkansas.


I saw some coverage of the tornado that


hit Alabama one month ago and it still


looks just like Joplin does now.


My prayers are with anyone that has


suffered such terrible loss and especially


the Hamil family and with the searchers


as they look for their 3 year old son.


Thank you for your prayers and for visiting


me today.


YOU ARE SPECIAL!!!!
