On Monday, May 20, 2013 tornadoes caused massive destruction in the community of Moore. Oklahoma. The devastation is bad, but there are a number of great organizations that are on the ground right now in Moore helping and serving in the name of Jesus! I wanted to let you know about them so you can donate, volunteer, and pray.
