TBM chaplains respond to Uvalde elementary school shooting

TBM chaplains are on their way to serve after a shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde left 21 people dead, including 18 students.


The chaplains are specially trained to minister in the aftermath of disasters. Typically they serve after tornadoes, hurricanes and other natural disasters, but TBM chaplains have served after other situations such as the 9/11 terrorist attack.


“We grieve what happened today,” said Mickey Lenamon, TBM executive director/CEO. “This tragedy is impacting every member of the Uvalde community right now. Please pray for the city during this extremely difficult time.”


The chaplains will help people share and work through their emotions in the wake of the shooting. They will be working alongside Uvalde church leaders throughout the city.


“Our chaplains will offer a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, an encouraging word and an offer of prayer,” Lenamon said. “They serve as a reminder to the community that people care about them and God cares about them.”
