After a tornado ripped through Sanderson, Pastor Mike Ellis said residents of the small West Texas town did what they typically do.

“It was neighbors helping neighbors,” said Ellis, pastor of First Baptist Church in Sanderson.

The tornado that hit Sanderson Sunday evening, June 2, left the church building unscathed, he noted. However, the tornado hit the homes of two church member families. One family expects to be able to rebuild. The other was a complete loss.

Texans on Mission chainsaw volunteers from Big Bend Baptist Association helped clear fallen trees from homes.
