Brent's New Mission Address/Brent Greeted with a Tornado!

Brent left the MTC yesterday for the Minneapolis Minnesota Spanish Speaking Mission. I just got off the phone with Brent's Uncle Matt who, with his family, lives in Minnesota. Matt mentioned that Brent was greeted with a possible TORNADO yesterday. I went online and found the following story (good thing I didn't know about this yesterday!)...

Winds rip through Minneapolis, possible tornado

MINNEAPOLIS — Weather experts are looking into tornado reports after powerful winds ripped through Minneapolis, tearing off part of a 90-year-old metal church steeple.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning Wednesday afternoon after receiving reports of a tornado just north of downtown. The city has received no immediate reports of injury.

The winds toppled trees and scattered large outdoor tents and chairs set up downtown for the national Evangelical Lutheran Church in America convention. The steeple at the Central Lutheran Church next door was damaged as 120 people were inside, though a church spokesman said no one was injured

Hennepin County sheriff's officials said trained weather spotters also reported seeing a tornado.

WOW! What a way to be greeted to your new mission Brent!

Brent's Address for the next 22 months will be:

Elder Brent Lee Jorgensen
Minnesota Minneapolis Mission
5931 W. 96th St.
Bloomington, MN, 55438-1715

I'm sure he would love to hear from you!
