I’m so very grateful to each member of our team who with just moments notice dropped everything in their different schedule’s to drive, fly, bring equipment etc, and pitch in to help with the recovery and cleanup efforts after the horrific and devastating tornado’s here in Middle Tennessee. I’m also extremely thankful to each of you who’ve continued to pray for everyone affected by this tragedy, as well as for our team and the many others who worked on the ground. Thousands of volunteers continue to pour in and be a vital part of this recovery, cleanup, and rebuild. Each one of you is showing your amazing heart! I know Middle Tennessee will rebuild and come back stronger, but over the next few weeks as this noise and chaos begins to dissipate, I just can’t help but think of all precious people who’ve lost dear loved ones and the broken families that will never be the same... I’m heartbroken for your loss, and will continue to keep each of you who I met on the ground in person this week, as well as many others who’ve reached out to tell your stories, in my thoughts and prayers. I’d love if you all joined me in a prayer for grace, peace and renewed hope for everyone involved. #NashvilleStrong 🖤
