Tornados that struck the Dallas, Texas area the weekend after Christmas 2015 left a trail of death and destruction have become a symbol of hope for one church. The Oasis in Garland lost their building in the storms, but the pastor, Barney Huie, says the disaster that struck the church is going to be a launching pad for evangelistic outreach. Huie says no one hurt because regular Saturday events had been cancelled due to the holiday. The building was a total loss, however. Huie says they had insurance and will look for a temporary location while they rebuild. He says they are working to serve their community and praying for revival to come out of the rubble. He added,” “Everything that comes out of this will make us into the church that God has destined us to become. We are extremely optimistic about the future and the impact we can make in this community and neighborhood.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
