Natalia Puebla, 17, and Sandra Thomas, 55 | ‘It happened as it should have’

Natalia Puebla always felt that she wouldn’t live long. She even prayed to Jesus to ask that if something were to happen, she wanted to go before her mother. She didn’t want to live on Earth without her. Sunday night, as the roof of Joplin Full Gospel Church caved in around them, her mother, Latina Puebla, remembers Natalia holding tight to Natalia’s aunt, Sandra Thomas, while praying and speaking in tongues.
