A miracle story has emerged after a tornado struck Paducah, KY recently, devastating a church building where 40 preschool kids and 10 church staff were going about their day. The miracle? No one was killed or injured even though the roof was ripped off. The only room that survived unscathed was the room they were in.
Church member Sylvia Cherry said, “We just give God the glory that no one was hurt.”
Residents of Paducah took shelter as a tornado tore through five miles of land. The twister damaged several buildings including Mt. Zion Baptist Church. When the twister hit, the church’s pre-school was in full swing. Preschool Director Michelle Rushing took the 40 children to safety into the innermost room.
As the storm raged around them, the Baptist Press reports they sang songs like “Jesus Loves Me” and “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”.
The church has rejoiced at God’s grace to protect the children and staff from harm. And members of the community showed up in droves to help the church begin its recovery efforts.
