Jackson, Miss. (UMNS) - After 30 tornadoes cut a swath of destruction across 13 counties, in Mississippi on Saturday, April 24, killing 10 and injuring dozens of residents, Bishop Hope Morgan Ward reported that conference officials were working with impacted communities to assess damage and identify places for recovery ministries.

"We pray for those who have lost loved ones in the storm, for all who have lost their homes and possessions, for all whose livelihood is impacted by the loss of business, and for all who will be helping with the recovery and rebuilding efforts across Mississippi," she said.
