I’ve lived in Tornado Alley all my life, and take it from me, when tornadoes strike down South, churches rally. Local churches are often the first to provide shelters, supplies, volunteers, counseling, and information.  

So I was happy to see that World Vision’s approach to helping victims of the recent disasters in the Midwest begins with supporting the work of local churches. With the victims of the recent tornados in your heart and prayers, consider donating a few bucks to World Vision today. Or you can donate to The American Red Cross or Samaritan’s Purse.
