  1. First thank you Rachel for sharing this with us, you are a blessing to all you encounter. What I found most profound is that it was the community that rose up to help, to heal and to encourage the victims of this tornado. No American should ever doubt the generosity of our people. We have seen it time and time again. This outreach can never be institutionalized by government mandates. It is who we are, the most humane, generous and caring nation on earth.

  2. Rachel as your Mother and Grandmother and Gary who are three that sat and watched your Tornado Story we were blown away in a great way~ God is so wonderful working through you and others to get T-Town back to some semblance of its original state.

    You touched so many lives and so many touched your life. You are known for your special way to love on others~ Miss you and hope to see you soon~

  3. I love your line that people came from all over to support strangers.

    When adversity strikes we begin to see that we are more closely related than people tend to think. Tornados, as I am sure you are aware, do not care what color you are, what your social economic background is, what status you have in the community, or what kind of car you drive. Tornados are an equal opportunity destroyer.

    Yet through the ruins humanity (as you so eloquently peiced together in this film) came shining through.

    Thank you for your perserverance, your dogged committment to helping others by letting the Love of Jesus Christ work through your hands as you helped others.

    You are a remarkable young lady and I am honored to know you as my friend.

  4. Thank you for that piece. You are a blessing to many, that you may never know. As I’ve always heard, God works in mysterious ways. This brought a state and it’s people together in a way nothing else could. Thank you again.

  5. Watched it once again and it reminds us of how blessed we really are! Going back to T-Town this Saturday to celebrate Todd’s Graduation from Alabama with his Master’s Degree and will see just how miraculous our Lord is!

    Keep doing what you do best…loving others with a “Whole Heart” Rachel Joy!
