Mississippi churchgoer saved from tornado's wrath
from The Washington Times
Dale Thrasher, 60, had been alone in Hillcrest Baptist Church in New Albany, Miss., when the tornado hit Saturday, ripping away wood and metal until all that was left was rubble, Mr. Thrasher and the table he had climbed under as he prayed for protection. "The whole building caved in," he said. "But me and that table were still there." Sunday was sunny and breezy as Mr. Thrasher and other members of the Yazoo City church dug through the debris and pulled out a few chairs and other items. One found a hymnal opened to the song, "Till the Storm Passes By."
