The House Blew Down

Pastor Copeland took us out to see the site of a small brick and mud house whose roof was blown down and walls broken and nearly washed away by a rain storm earlier this year. His young parishioner and her sister lived in the house and survived the storm. They are staying in temporary quarters until the house gets repaired, which apparently won’t happen until building materials and labor can be found. Copeland asked if our team could rebuild it. We assessed the damage and prospects for rebuilding the house, but it was beyond our capacity. WorldHope Corps will consider sponsoring the project if a donor can be found.
