NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS!!!There are days when God’s blessings overcome any hardship that you ever experience. This is a report about one of those days. In 2018, Pastor Steven Perrine and Victory Baptist Church faced the impact of Hurricane Michael. Well, I will let him tell you…
“Dear Bro. Milton, I just wanted to take a moment to say how good God had been to us at Victory Baptist Church in Panama City, Fl. On October 10, 2018 our town and church were hit by Hurricane Michael, a category 5 storm. We suffered extensive damage to our building. We had a 68,300 deductible with our insurance company. Not sure what to do except to begin to pray and ask for God's help in this matter. Through the help of ministries like Operation Renewed Hope, Churches and individuals; God more than supplied the need that we had. Then through the faithful help of many people construction began as we set out to rebuild our building. God blessed and on October 27th, 2019 we had our first service back in our sanctuary. It was our Church's 36th anniversary. There was over 100 people present as we celebrated this wonderful day and rejoiced in what the Lord had done. Praise the Lord over the last year since the storm we have had 20 plus people added to our church. And the icing on the cake was God provided for our mortgage to be paid off so now our church is renovated and completely debt-free. Again, praise the Lord, He is good all the time.”
ORH sends this to you on Christmas day so you can tell your family that God gave his son whose birth we are remembering with our festivities. But we must never forget, God continues to give in each dark circumstance of life because he loves us. In the face of our greatest heart aches, God sees! He saw Victory Baptist Church, and many others impacted by Hurricane Michael.
ORH, thanks God that He allowed us through you to be a part of God’s grace in Panama City, FL. Mr. Ted Weinberg and his crews worked, relentless, to finish this church. Ted has partnered with ORH in the past, and he is God’s good man. Please download the attachment.
Pastor Perrine what a great Christmas story! – “God so loved that he gave.” Anytime you need ORH, pick up the phone. We love Christmas!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND GOD BLESS US, EVERYONE!!!
