An inquiry into the Uvalde elementary school shooting has begun behind closed doors. Nearly three weeks after the attack, the stories are still coming out of this small community in Southern Texas.

Official accounts keep changing on what actually happened when an 18-year-old gunman entered Robb Elementary School, killing 19 children and two teachers.

For example, authorities’ early reports said the gunman entered through a propped school door. The public was also initially told that responding officers “immediately breached” the shooter’s location in the school when they arrived. Neither of these turned out to be true.

Meanwhile, the Uvalde community is reeling from unspeakable tragedy.

Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) works with children around the world to provide Gospel resources and biblical discipleship. CEF recently sent a team to Uvalde for street ministry and spiritual community care.

Although the weather was hovering around 99 degrees, the CEF team says people were out all over the city grieving and praying together.

One team member said, “I have never been in a community that was so open to the Gospel, the love of Christ, and had such a willingness to talk and pray with complete strangers.”
