Ulrich farm owner Rex Beall lost some cattle, buildings and a workshop. He knows it could have been worse.
“I thought, ‘Clean up for a week just to clean this stuff and the shrapnel where we can get semi-finished products and get food back here,'” Beall said. “We did it with so many people in one day – just the pouring out of support and love, there aren’t even words for it.”
As the cleanup continues, the people of this small town are proving that the church has a big heart.
