A Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplain shared his story of a miracle he saw while visiting areas hard hit by a tornado in Alabama this month. As a result, the images have gone viral and have been shared almost 100,000 times.
From Jason Smith’s Facebook page:
Listen to me please. I just left a family who survived the tornado in this house and the only left standing is this closet. It’s the grandmother’s prayer closet, and the whole family survived. Are you kiddin me!!! My God is awesome!!! Shout somebody! –Jason–
Here’s his post, along with the two images he uploaded.
The powerful tornado hit Lee County on March 3rd. Four children were among the 23 people killed.
This report follows two from earlier this month where Bibles at two fire-ravaged churches miraculously survived.
One was in Wisconsin:
A 150-year-old Bible has survived two major church fires in its lifetime and is serving as a symbol of strength and perseverance to members of The Springs — Your United Methodist Community in Plover, which was severely damaged Monday in a fire.
“It’s a great testament to our faith that stands strong even in the midst of this (fire),” said pastor Tim O’Brien.
Firefighters were able to recover the Bible, which was displayed in a glass case at the time of the fire, said Yvonne Chojnacki, director of administration and mission for The Springs. The Bible also survived a fire at the former St. Paul’s Methodist Church in downtown Stevens Point, which burned down in the mid-1900’s, O’Brien said.

The other was in West Virginia, where Bibles and a cross were undamaged:
Firefighters told CBS-affiliate WVNS that as they were going through the wreckage of Freedom Ministries Church in Daniels, West Virginia, not a single Bible was burned and the church’s cross was not damaged.
A church fire was so hot that firefighters had to evacuate. However, not a single Bible or cross was burned in the blaze. The Coal City Fire Department in West Virginia wrote in a Facebook post, “though odds were against us, God was not.”

No one was injured in either fire, thankfully, but the churches in each incident appear to be total losses.
