“We did indeed have right at 5 foot of water in the church and right at 4 foot in the gym. We had to have four mobile homes torn down because they were no longer inhabitable. We lost all three of our Sunday School busses and our 15 passenger van. We did have some insurance but not enough to purchase new vehicles. Our buildings have now been gutted and in the process of drying. We were able to get two Learning Centers in our gym set up to use as a supply room and one for church service, praise the Lord.
We are still a couple of weeks out but we are in need of Sheetrock and other building supplies to begin the rebuild process. We ask for prayers for this need at the moment. God has been so good to us and supplied many needs so far. I will attach some pictures for you to see what thugs looked like when we were able to return a week after the water STARTED to recede and now as we are drying. God bless and thanks so much for your help and prayers. In His Service, Chuck Smith, Associate Pastor”
I called Pastor Smith and asked if ORH could publish his report so that we could raise money for his church and church families. He answer follows.
Wow! That's amazing! Thanks so much.
