Funerals Held For Tornado Victims

Ad Feedback

Funeral services are being held for the victims of last week's deadly tornadoes.

Fifty-nine people were killed in the deadliest wave of tornadoes to hit the South in more than two decades.

Meanwhile, churches came together for worship services over the weekend.

A Baptist church in Tennessee was forced to use a Junior High school gymnasium after their church was destroyed.

A Pentecostal congregation met in a neighboring church building. However, the church's pastor thanks God for sparing their lives.

He says God may have led him to cancel services Tuesday evening or his congregation would have been in church right when the tornado hit.

"Somebody could be preaching my funeral or I could be preaching a lot of funerals in the next week or so," said Pastor Donald Lance of the Lighthouse United Pentecostal Church. "We have just got to rebuild a building."

"We don't have a tragedy here," Lance said. "We have a testimony."
