Friday night, tornadoes tore through Mississippi, leaving a 100-mile path of destruction. Search and rescue operations are underway as people remain trapped in their homes. As of Saturday morning, at least 23 people have been confirmed dead and more than 110,000 people are without power.
The tornadoes ripped through many small towns, damaging infrastructure and leaving hundreds of thousands without vital supplies, such as food, water, electricity, and shelter. We are sending $25,000 through our Disaster Relief Fund, which helps support ministries like Convoy of Hope, who are already responding. We're grateful relief supplies are en route this morning, with a team to assess the needs of the affected communities and begin distribution. Thank you, Church, for your prayers and your ongoing generosity.
