Pastor Keith Falk of Peace Lutheran Church, a NALC congregation in Edmond, Okla., was asked to share his reflections on disaster response efforts immediately following the tornados in Oklahoma that killed 24 people.
Moore, Okla., a city which received terrible damage from the May 20 tornado, is about 25 miles south of Edmond. Both cities are part of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. Officials estimate that more than 12,000 homes have been damaged and put total damage at $2 billion.
