Amid the utter devastation brought to a small Virginia community hit by an enormous tornado, one teen saw that the best response to tragedy is to cry out to God in worship.
In an incredible Facebook Live video, 17-year-old Tre Tyree was filmed standing on the bare foundation of a family’s destroyed home, clutching a guitar and leading a small assembled crowd in sung praise. His song of choice? “Praise You in This Storm.”
The desolate space on which Tyree was standing was once home to the Fink family. As Faithwire previously reported, when the storm hit April 15, Gary Fink, a former Marine and Lynchburg Police officer, managed to usher his five kids and his cancer-striken wife, Leecy, to safety before it was too late. Tragically, everything they owned was lost in the storm.
Images posted on the GoFundMe page show the devastating extent of the damage inflicted by the massive tornado on the family’s home. But after Amy Loughhead Moore, a family friend, set up the fundraising page online, support has been pouring in.
“This family who does so much for so many people needs our help,” Moore writes on the page’s description.
“The Fink family are a powerful force to glorify our Lord no matter what the circumstance,” one person commented on Facebook.
“Thanking the Lord for His protection over your family. You all are in our continued prayers,” another added on the GoFundMe page, which as raised over $67,000. “Leecy,once again I will be keeping you and your family in prayer. What a great and loving God we love and serve!”
