Pastor Wes Fowler of First Baptist Mayfield in Kentucky said God will see residents through the devastation after 30 tornados struck America’s heartland last weekend, ripping through six states and killing 74 people, including children.

The pillar of hope that remains as a beacon light is the cross located in front of the building. The only structure left standing among the rubble.

“It’s amazing to me that in that education building across the street, that cross that we put in the windows is still there, and the window’s gone,” Barry Fowler, church member, told the Washington Post. “Everything else is gone. The cross still stands.”

Fowler reminded people that the Lord is kind. “He will see us through this tragic situation. And, I believe the Lord will somehow use this difficult time for His glory.”

National Guard members went house to house, checking on people and Cadaver dogs searched for victims, Fox News reported.
