Hurricane Florence and Michael
Karl and Cathy Steudl from Emmanuel Independent Baptist Church in Winchester, Va, have been very busy in the Hurricane Florence impact area, Grace Baptist, Wilmington, NC, and Anchor Baptist, Little River, SC. They have a commercial de-humidifier which will dry a home, so the work of restoration may begin.
ORH is very thankful for their efforts and rejoices to pay their expenses to do this work. The following are two messages from them.
“Good morning Bro. Jan. Karl and I have dried-out two homes so far as well as much dry wall removal. We just spoke with pastor Karl Wood and will work with him this Thursday and Friday. The pictures are of the two homes we have worked on so far here in Wilmington, NC.”
“Good morning Bro. Jan. Karl and I are in Little River, SC, drying-out the gentleman's home for Pastor Carl Wood with Anchor Baptist.”
Pray that we can help people rebuild both in Wilmington and Little River.
Mike Volmer sent this message about Conway, SC.
“Grand Strand Baptist Church just west of Myrtle Beach made it through the hurricane and was pretty heavily involved with relief efforts. Their Pastor pointed me to Wendy Shelley as his point of contact. They were closing-down their distribution center when I got there Tuesday. From speaking with her, they were able to lead over 60 people to Christ during this time. With regards to long term assistance, they had 6 families that were in need of help. I left Brother Milton’s forms with them and began looking westward past Conway.”
Brother Volmer has been a blessing as he travels finding those in need. Pray we will have enough funds to help these families that he has found.
