REACHING OUT TO THE TULIA TORNADO VICTIMS

A letter to the editor in the local Childress newspaper asking for community of Childress to help give certain items for the Tulia tornado victims:
No Charge

Everyone in town pitching in to buy supplies for the tornado victim:
A few dollars from each person

A tank of gas from Childress to Tulia to deliver a trailer full of collected items:
$60.00
Filling a big trailer full of supplies and being a part of a loving community that shows its giving spirit:
Priceless!

Lea and I are headed over to Tulia today to take a ton of supplies to the Tulia tornado victims. Monday when I called Tulia and asked what they needed, they gave me a list of 10 items they could really use. I sent out an email all over the community and put a note in the local paper and “presto” tons of things donated. Plus, close to $1500 to the Tulia Relief Fund that we’ll deliver to the Tulia community.

Thank you Childress community for your giving spirit and your compassion.

(Mrs. Jenschke’s 3rd grade elementary school class came over bringing supplies and helped me load the trailer.)

    This made such an impact on my students. They were so willing to bring items to donate and they applauded one another for their efforts. Even through all the “grind” at school I am constantly amazed at the kind, giving hearts of children. Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of this.

    Hey guys … Thanks for the kudos, but I didn’t do a thing other than collect the item. The community of Childress, who experienced their own tornado last summer, were the ones that came though with money and supplies. I was amazed.

    The people of Tulia were so thankful today. They said they’d given their last package of toilet paper out this morning. We brought close to 100 packages. Plus other things too. They were running low on a few more items as well.

    The sweet people of Tulia were grateful to the Childress community.

    I was blessed to hug a bunch of necks and tell folks that we were praying for them. But as for praise … God gets the glory. I was just honored to be involved in all of it.

    I just want everyone to know that Trey is so wonderful because I am his older sister and I help to raise him! Ah Ha!

    Trey, I understand the humility but you are a good example. I will try to follow you as you follow Christ. It does also say something about the church in Childress. Like the use of the building for the pizza party, this is being the hands of Christ.

    Trey, as one who has been on the receiving end of a mission such as yours, I thank you for your love for strangers. I know the feeling of working so hard, being so overwhelmed, and then a fresh face drives in with needed supplies. I know that in addition to the supplies you brought, your smile, your warmth, your love of Jesus, and your spirit supplied something that could not fit in the trailer. God bless you for your work.

    Trey – you made me cry with this blog!

    You also made my best friends day, when she saw you and Lea! Please keep Teresa in your prayers. This is going to be a very trying time for her! But I also thank God everyday that she wasn’t at ALCO when the tornado hit. She was with me and I knew she was safe.

    Thank you, Childress, TX, for your generosity!

    Sandi,

    Thanks for leaving the note. Seems like after looking around at all the damage, we weren’t able to do all that much. While I wish it had been more, I know it was helpful.

    You guys hang in there …
