Tornado damage

LAFAYETTE, Tenn.--Two Church of God members lost their home here in a tornado Feb. 5, 2008.

United Church of God elder Fred Kellers, after visiting Jimmy and Judy Law, members of the UCG, said the Laws "have everything they need" but "they do need prayer, including prayer that Jimmy is able to find a used dump truck to replace the 17-foot dump truck that was damaged.
