Our Church Building Took a Hit!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING.
We just got power back and as soon as the air conditioning cools the house (and my brain cells) I'll be able to write about our 2-day Hurricane experience. But for now, I want to share some photos so you know how to pray for us--we have a rebuilding ahead of us.
We have an older mission-style church with a copper roof. The roof curled up much like opening a sardine can. Even though there was plywood under the copper, you can see spots of daylight, and water came in and ruined the ceiling tile, crashing it into the pews. Pews are ruined with popped veneer, the hymnals and pew cushions are ruined, the carpet is soggy, the walls are water damaged and the SMELL is horrific. We'll be meeting in the fellowship for several months while we do the repairs. I'll tell you more about the hurricane later, but for now, take a look at some of the photos and pray as we rebuild.
