Adjuster Says...

For those of you following the path Hurricane Dolly has taken through our church, you might be interested to know the insurance adjuster came by yesterday for his initial assessment. He has been in the Rio Grande Valley examining church damage for a few days now and he says our church has the worst damage of any he has seen from Dolly's destruction. But...not to leave it on a negative...we are also seeing God providing in amazing ways. It will take months of rebuilding but we are up for the challenge. Our heart's desire is to not just see the sanctuary rebuilt (the PLACE of our worship), but the church family rebuilt (the PEOPLE of worship). We certainly plan to take this two-prong approach to rebuilding. We all have something in our lives that needs a do-over. Not just redoing the junk we already have, but letting God do a NEW WORK in us! If you are here to see photos of the damage, feel free to scroll down to last week, when this journey began.

Kathy, I had no idea you were directly affected by Dolly. You, your husband, and your church family will certainly be in my prayers. Your entries, which I just skimmed, are quite uplifting, considering all that has happened. But as you point out, much to give Him thanks for, much to expect Him to do.

Wow...I'm heart-broken for you all...and sad to see all the damage to the church. My family was involved at FBC all during my junior high and high school years and will never forgot the memories of that church. I don't know if anyone that we still know even still attend. God Bless and we'll be keeping you all in our prayers. Becky Baker Empson
