North Central Florida church volunteers lend a hand to recent tornado victims

By

The death toll from the massive tornado that ripped through Southwestern Missouri continues to climb. The EF4 tornado destroyed more than 2,000 homes. On Monday about 1,500 fire fighters and police officers searched for missing people. Charles Litzell is very familiar with the devastation the tornados can bring. Litzell is the pastor of the New Cross Creek Baptist Church. He recently returned from Alabama where he saw the damage caused by the Tuscaloosa, Alabama tornado. WUFT-FM’s Brittany Thompson spoke with Pastor Litzell who volunteers with the Florida Baptist Convention Disaster Relief Team. He says calls for help are already coming in for immediate response to the deadly Joplin, Missouri tornado.
