For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

Tornado survivors recount God's protection

Associated Press

AMYAZOO CITY, Miss.- A Mississippi man says he prayed to God under a communion table as his church was blown to pieces around him by a tornado on Saturday.

Dale Thrasher says, "The whole building caved in, but me and that table were still there."

On Sunday, Thrasher and other members of Hillcrest Baptist Church in Yazoo City dug through the debris. One found a hymnal opened to the song, "Till the Storm Passes By."

The tornado killed at least 10 people and damaged hundreds of homes in Mississippi.

Yazoo County Coroner Ricky Shivers -- a Baptist deacon -- says he was in his truck when the twister picked it up and flipped it four times. Shivers says he told God that if it was his time to die, he was ready. Later he went out in his hospital gown to help identify bodies.
