HARRISONBURG, Va. -- A missionary group that assisted in clean up efforts in Oklahoma is back with stories to share, recalling the rebuilding that's being done after a deadly tornado hit the area.
The missionary team spent its time helping a farmer in the area rebuild.
The farmer lost all his crops two days before harvest. In total more than 2,000 acres of his crops disappeared after the deadly tornado.
"It would've taken the farmer Jerry Lingo over a year to clean his fields, if volunteers did not come all over the country and help. For us, it was very rewarding, we were the last group to walk the grid. We would take trash bags and pales," said Cindy Parks, the missionary chair with the Harrisonburg Baptist Church.
The missionary group hung signed t-shirts in front of a nearby elementary school with words of encouragement.
They will be used to make a quilt once the school is rebuilt.
