Pray for tornado victims

Danville news

To all of our Hartselle Enquirer readers, I ask each of you to join me in prayer for all of those who have lost loved ones and their homes in the tornadoes on Wednesday of last week. I was told Sunday that a Mexican baby was found in Lawrence County in a family’s yard. The baby was alive and well and the baby’s family was located and they were safe. However, their nine-year-old daughter was killed in the storm.
I know in my heart that God was taking care of that baby and I count my blessings. We have been without power since Wednesday but I’m so very thankful for God’s blessings and the health of my family and myself, and to have a roof over our heads.
