As I write, our Mercy Chefs teams are hard at work providing hot meals to families impacted by storms in both Oklahoma and Texas. This morning, over 120,000 customers are still without power in the Dallas area. We're getting both lunch and dinner to those who need help. 

In Claremore, Oklahoma, we are continuing to help that community as the families there begin the long road to recovery from the tornado that ripped through town.

+ + Mandy and Jerry's story...

I want you to hear Mandy and Jerry's story, Claremore residents who had their property decimated by the tornado. At the end of a very long day of cleaning up and sifting through belongings, our Mercy Chefs team arrived with hot meals that you helped provide. Here's what happened next...

This is why Mercy Chefs exists -- to be there and help Mandy, Jerry and so many other families who just saw their lives turned upside down by disaster in a tangible way.

Since just over one month ago, Mercy Chefs has deployed to seven communities impacted by storms. We've served tens of thousands of hot meals, and we'll continue to serve meals with the help of friends like you.

If you haven't donated recently, would you consider making a gift today to help sponsor 10, 20, 50, or even 100 meals we'll serve in the next 24 hours in Oklahoma and Texas? Go here:

If you donated recently, THANK YOU SO MUCH! Mandy and Jerry's story of how a hot meal helped them through this difficult season is very much YOUR STORY. Your prayers and generous support make every meal possible.

Thanks and may God bless you richly.
