HARRISONBURG -- A group of mission workers from our area is heading to Oklahoma to help in the relief efforts underway after the deadly tornado that killed more than a dozen last month.
"Just hug em' and listen to them, hug em' and pray with them. Whatever we feel that they need and just to let them know that there's someone on the other side of the country that thinks about them and understands that they're in a really hard place right now," said Cindy Parks, the chair of the missionary.
Parks is the chair of the missionary. She and nine others will travel to Oklahoma to help with debris clean up.
They will also be handing out eight moving size boxes of toys to children in the area which were collected over the span of three weeks. In addition, the group will hand written cards to families.
The trip to Oklahoma will take the group 18 hours. They will start traveling on Saturday at 4 a.m.
