The Tennessee community continues to worship God in a tent after a deadly tornado destroyed their church building last week. The community is now rebuilding and recovering from the devastation through their faith in God.
On March 2, series of large tornadoes swept through the heart of Tennessee, killing dozens, injuring many people and destroying infrastructures. But Nashville and the surrounding areas are rebuilding their community with faith.
Tennessee community continues to worship God
On Sunday, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and his wife attended a worship service at the Mount Bethel Missionary Baptist Church. After a tornado ripped the roof of the church building, the Sunday service was held in a tent in the parking lot. Construction workers, volunteers and other community members joined in worship and pray before continuing their rebuilding efforts.
“Through it all, God is good,” Bobbie Harris, 79, said after she lost her rental home, job, and part of her church. “He saved me.”
Pastor Jacques Boyd also encouraged their community to put their trust in the Lord.
“We must trust in the savior who does not deliver us from storms but through storms,” he said.
“Faith is everything.”
Meanwhile, three-year-old Dax Kelly is inspiring everyone with his willingness to help others. A photo of him riding his tricycle with a tool he had in his back pocket is touching people’s hearts. He is offering the neighborhood help to rebuild their houses saying, “God wants us to help, I’m going to do what I can.”
Jax’s mother, Kelly, also shared how their faith in God helped them get through the deadly tornado.
“Faith is everything. I prayed as we got in the closet that we would just be safe. God has always had His hand on us. Our faith is very, very strong. I’ve taught our children from a very young age that most important is to love God and that’s pretty much how we live our days. Jax knows what God wants us to do and that was his focus.”
