A special thanks goes out to the First Church Pearland and Pastor Ken Gurley for supplying a tent to the Highland Park Church. Volunteers from Chipley, Crawfordville, Perry, Sopchoppy and Tallahassee solved the puzzle of erecting the tent. We now have it up and operational in Highland Park for that congregation to hold service in on Sunday.
The Westville church with the Open Pond congregation furnished volunteers to the Office Depot location on 23rd Street, in Panama City. Reach Out America, Feed the Children and Office Depot supplied food and necessities for hundreds of people and our wonderful apostolic people passed them out.
Thanks also to the Men’s Director of Alabama; Brother J.B. Sims, and those that came with him for bringing a backhoe and a skid-steer to the Panama City church for operation “clean up.” A lot of the debris was removed and they now can hold services in their pavilion.
We shall also commend with special thanks, the National Guard who set up their operations in the parking lot of the Panama City church. They indeed, have been an incredible blessing to that congregation. Our prayers are for those deployed in this time of need.
Special thanks to our fellow pastors and their men and ladies for the relief ministered to our brothers and sisters in Christ this week.
