It’s been four weeks since Hurricane Michael made landfall in West Florida. According to the Superintendent of the West Florida District of the Assemblies of God, Pastor Tommy Moore, the wreckage left behind is “unprecedented, as the wide-spread damage is 70 miles wide and 90 miles deep.”
The churches and people of West Florida are resilient! The photo above shows Life and Praise Assembly of God in Panama City. Their crumbling church building didn’t stop them from meeting together on Sunday! They set chairs up outside and had church!
As stated by Pastor Tommy, “The district has been working hard in preparation to host teams, which are going to be a vital part of the recovery and rebuilding process. We will need specialty teams, as well as general labor teams. Accommodations for housing are being arranged, and RV spaces are available.”
