MADILL—Recovery continues after a March 21 tornado struck southeastern Oklahoma. Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief (DR) has been serving in the area, helping churches and communities affected by the storm.

“The areas with the most damage are Kingston, Little City and Buncombe Creek,” said Don Williams, Oklahoma DR director, mentioning areas near Madill. “We have assessors and chaplains going through each area, visiting with homeowners and seeing if we can help.”

Williams presented a check from DR of $5,000 to Pastor Keith Rogers of Kingston, Texoma Southern. DR team members are removing debris from Texoma Southern’s campus, and Williams also reported Campers on Mission have committed to help rebuild Texoma Southern, as the church and the adjacent parsonage took a direct and devastating hit from the tornado.

Madill, Little City also experienced damage. Williams said DR will be presenting a check to Pastor Cecil Mackey early next week.

“We are coming alongside the churches and communities to help them move forward,” Williams said. “Of course, we do this to show we care and to share the love of Jesus.”
