This is Ann LeBlanc, with Mercy Chefs. Yesterday, I visited what's left of the home of Joyce, an 87-year-old grandmother who barely survived the tornado that hit Sulphur this past weekend.

We prepared a short video as I walked through the remains of her home, and I'll show you where she was sitting when the storm hit.

It is an absolute miracle that Joyce survived. Click below for Joyce's story.

If Joyce had been in her bedroom when the storm hit, there's almost no way she would have survived. But Joyce's life was spared, and now she has to begin to pick up the pieces and move forward -- along with so many of her neighbors.

+ + We're serving hot meals to tornado victims today...

This is why Mercy Chefs exists -- to stand with and support those whose lives have been turned upside down by disaster and hardship.

Our team here in Sulphur has been serving hot meals since less than 24 hours after the tornado hit. Today, our chefs and team members are already hard at work preparing a nutritious lunch that will roll into dinner. 

Can you help us with the meals we will serve today and tomorrow? Just $70 will help sponsor 20 meals. Of course, every gift will help. Go here to help Oklahoma families who have been devastated by these tornadoes while we continue other vital efforts:

Finally, please keep praying for the people of Sulphur and surrounding communities. The families here are still very much in shock. Many don't have adequate insurance to rebuild. Right now, they need our prayers and our support.

Thanks in advance and may God bless you richly.
