Even though the buildings lie in ruin, the congregations that made them churches gathered in an auditorium turned sanctuary to worship.

"Some of us lost homes. Most of you all who are seated here today, you lost your worship halls, your church buildings," said one church leader.

"Many of you have went through it, and were spared. And it causes us to realize how thankful we need to be."

So they sang and listened to words of encouragement from the various church leaders.

"It's a wreck. It's a mess, but He makes us whole and we will be made whole."

Throughout the service, the unified congregation embraced, shed tears, and even shared laughs.

"Amidst that disaster, the mess my office was...if you'd seen my office before the tornado, you know it's probably an improvement. Amen."

And as the group looks at the challenges ahead, they do so as a single unit, bound by faith and the love they have for each other.
