Ann and I have been on the ground here in Winchester where our Mercy Chefs teams are serving hot meals to tornado victims across two states -- Indiana and Ohio.

It's always sobering to see the destructive force of a tornado up close. Ann and I visited neighborhoods that were ravaged by the winds from this EF-3 tornado. In a few moments, many families' lives were turned upside down. Now, they are left searching for belongings, wondering if their home is salvagable, and unsure of where their next meal will come from.

This is why Mercy Chefs exists -- to stand in the gap for families impacted by disaster and hardship.

And this is where you come in...

I'm asking you to prayerfully consider helping today. If you haven't yet donated to help our tornado relief efforts in Indiana and Ohio, will you do so today? Just $70 will help provide 20 hot meals. Perhaps you can do more. Every gift helps us feed tornado victims right now. Go here:

If you already donated, THANK YOU SO MUCH! If you can donate again, it would be a great blessing to those we are serving.

As I write, our teams are working hard to provide hot, nutritious, chef-prepared meals. Throughout the day today, we'll deliver these meals to tornado victims in eastern Indiana and western Ohio.  Every meal we serve is made possible by friends like you!

These small towns were devastated. The people here need our help. Please pray and partner with us.

God bless you,

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
