David and Tamela Mann ‘thankful’ no one was hurt after lightning strikes their home

GETTYArticle By Asia Jackson // EEW Magazine News

Christian entertainers and husband and wife team, David and Tamela Mann, are thanking God for sparing their lives.

According to the couple, both 49, lightning struck their Texas home early Monday morning, damaging their roof.

“Imagine an explosion waking you up,” the stars of Bounce TV’s hit comedy series “Mann & Wife” wrote on Instagram, adding the hashtag “#thankful.”

According to a Fox 4 report, the Manns aren’t the only family dealing with the aftermath of spring storms that have swept across North Texas dumping hail, large amounts of rain and several lightning strikes, causing damage across the metroplex.

While the home of the well-known pair remains largely intact and is inhabitable, others were not so fortunate and have been displaced, and are receiving assistance from the Red Cross.

In a video shared on the Manns' social media pages, David gives fans a look at some of the external ruin caused by the lightning, as a construction crew works on repairing roof damage.

“Because it’s a danger, a hazard, I had the guys to come over and just try to at least get it where it wouldn’t continue to fall,” David explained in the footage. “So they’re fixing it.”

Thousands of those who love and support the 28-year-married couple are giving thanks to God online, expressing gratitude that no one was hurt.
