Pence Joins Samaritan’s Purse Volunteers in Kentucky
Former Vice President Mike Pence and his wife joined Samaritan’s Purse volunteers helping to clean up tornado damage in Mayfield, Kentucky.
“We just wanted to come down and say thank you. Thanks for putting hands and feet to your faith. When we saw this, it broke our hearts,” the former vice president said. “We knew immediately that Samaritan’s Purse would be here. It is very moving for us to see you put your faith into action. Thank you for serving. It is even more moving for me to think that you’re doing this during Christmas week. Your work here with volunteers from across the country is a testimony to your compassion.”
Samaritan’s Purse has deployed volunteers to Mayfield and Bowling Green along with northeastern Arkansas. So far they have helped more than 140 families.
“I am grateful for the Vice President and his wife Karen as well as every single one of our volunteers who are helping families affected by the deadly tornadoes,” Samaritan’s Purse founder Franklin Graham said. “They are reminding us that anyone can make a difference. There is still so much to do and there is a great need for more volunteers, but the greatest need is prayer. We must to continue to pray that God will comfort and provide for these families who have lost so much.”
