Ben and Megan Robertson — rebuilding their lives after the Beauregard tornado

Ben and Megan Robertson, as well as their 5-year-old son, suffered major injuries when they were thrown from their mobile home, which they then saw obliterated by an EF-4 tornado that struck the community of Beauregard, Alabama, on March 3, 2019. A total of 23 people in Beauregard died that day. As bad as their situation became, they know it could have been worse.

This week, their long road to full recovery takes a major step forward as The Millard Fuller Legacy Build brings volunteers from their area and from around the country to work alongside them in building a new, safe, permanent home where their mobile home once stood. The Robertsons took a few minutes to talk about that devastating day, their recovery, what this build means to them and how their already strong faith has only strengthened in the months since the tornado. Their story is captivating, so their words are presented uncut and unedited in the video below.

COMING THURSDAY: Meet some of the people who lost homes and loved ones on March 3.
