LEE COUNTY, Ala. – Recovery efforts continue in Alabama where an E4 tornado touched down earlier this month, destroying everything in its path.

But, there was one thing that managed to withstand the powerful storm: a grandmother’s prayer closet.

Chaplain Jason Smith was out with Billy Graham’s Rapid Response Team when he made the discovery, according to 11 Alive.

He wrote about it on Facebook saying the whole family survived.

“Are you kidding me? My God is awesome! Shout somebody!” he said.
