Storm in Alice

An amazing storm hit Alice with no warning at all a few weeks ago. We were without power for two days, but fortunately no one was injured.

Lots of trees were uprooted or blown over and clean up crews were busy for days. A few of the trees hit cars, houses, fences, and powerlines.
Hail and wind pound the parking lot in front of our flat.

A sister in our branch was driving down the street with a friend when the storm hit so she decided to pull over and wait it out. No sooner did she stop than a thought came very distinctly to her and she repeated it to her friend, "Something is telling me to move forward." She did so immediately, as her friend looked back. A huge piece of twisted metal sheeting came flying through the exact spot she had just moved from. The Lord can save us so much trouble in our lives when we listen to him. If he says to move forward, move forward.
