5.   “How are our churches and members?” So far, we are very thankful that we have not heard of any deaths among our members, although we grieve along with all those in our communities who have lost loved ones.  We have heard of many members whose homes were damaged, and we have heard of at least one church, Covenant in Tuscaloosa, that was heavily damaged.  You can see pictures of that church here:  http://www.covenanttuscaloosa.com/2011/04/29/covenant-hit-a-glancing-blow-by-tornado/ PDA is working with Covenant and the pastor, Rick Olson, to help that church meet immediate needs and move forward.  PDA is also making contact with a number of our churches to get a better picture of the effects on our members and communities.

Thank you for your continued prayers, and know that all of you are in our prayers.
