ORH just received this encouraging email from Pastor Gordon Dickson, Calvary Baptist, Findlay, OH.
“Jan, Thank you for your help with the Calvary Baptist Church of Clendenin, WV. Pastor Davis has been encouraged by your gracious support.
The Elk River flood that decimated this area makes it look like a war zone, but it is clear that many of the people are rebuilding.
After the power was restored to the church building a couple of weeks ago, we started running powerful dehumidifiers, and those are still in operation on site. Yesterday, the Grace Baptist Church of Bridgeport, WV led by Pastor Jeff Vaughan did a wonderful job of advancing the project for us. After mold remediation was completed, they were able to do the following:
Install the vapor barrier in the crawlspace.
Install new framing above the basement wall.
Scrub and vacuum all the hard surfaces in auditorium and upper story (with an "air scrubber" in use to capture all of the mold released into the air).
Please pray with us about these next steps, which we would like to do this week if we have the manpower.
Setting the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) units and wiring them up,
Installing ductwork for the HVAC,
Installing electrical sockets on the framing in the basement and wiring those up.
(We have access to a certified electrician in the area who is willing to inspect and certify the work of volunteers.)

ORH thanks Pastor Jeff Vaugh and his church for their efforts with Pastor Dickson. If you can send workers, please call Pastor Dickson. They are doing a wonderful job.
Please pray for the people in Louisiana. ORH was contacted about a pastor with 8’ to 10’ of water in his home from the flooding there. We will get more information.
