It is now the end of the third day following our latest tornado in Sweetwater. We are all still in shock but progress is being made in cleaning up and moving forward.
Life goes on and we are all very thankful to be alive and able to clean up the mess. We are thankful for all those who have reached out to try to help us and it is very much appreciated!!
Hopefully, the rain will go away tomorrow as a major effort toward cleaning up debris is planned with several crews.
The Baptist Disaster Relief feeding crew is here to feed all the workers and those affected by the disaster at the Baptist Church fellowship hall. A Baptist Debris cleanup crew will also be here tomorrow. Several DOC crews are scheduled to be here along with county workers.
The graduation ceremony for Sweetwater Schools will go on at 8:00pm Friday night at the First Baptist Church of Sweetwater.
I still believe it is true that I pray harder when I am in a closet with a tornado coming than when I am in a storm shelter. However, while we were in our storm shelter Saturday night with the roar of the tornado above and our house shaking from the force of the tornado I believe I was praying very hard! Praise God for sparing the lives all those in our community!
