Please pray for LAF writer, Kelly Crawford, and author of Generation Cedar. She and her family lost their home, outbuildings, and vehicles in yesterday’s tornadoes. They (and 4 neighboring families) sought refuge in the Crawford’s basement. One of these families – a family with 13 children - lost their husband/father in the storm. Kelly’s husband pulled them out of the rubble; and at this point, I understand some are badly injured.
I am getting regular updates, but last I heard, rescue workers were not able to get to them. Please pray they get relief soon. Also, Kelly gave birth to a baby earlier this month, so please pray for an extra measure of grace and protection for her as she ministers to her family and neighbors.
Again, Kelly and her family are safe. Praise God He spared their lives. Please pray for provision and peace for all involved. And please remember the precious wife and 13 children who woke this morning without their husband and father, and without a place to live.
For those who are interested in donating to the Alabama Relief Fund, you can give through Providence Church. If you would like your donation to specifically help Kelly and her family, please be sure to specify that. Donate HERE
I will update you as I get new information.
