Very Brief update
Much has happened in the past week. Monday night we had a beach party out on the gulf coast. We originally wanted to do fireworks as well as have a big cookout for everyone in the community. But due to the burn ban we were unable to have the fireworks show. But we did get to serve a lot of people hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken sandwiches on the beach. We have had teams from Georgia, Alabama, and California here this week working in the kitchen, on the church property, at the sawmill, and in the community in peoples homes and yards. The distribution center is still open Wednesday – Saturday and many people are still coming in to get food, clothing, toiletries, and other items. Ms. Bea and Ms. Lynn are working hard to keep the shelves stocked so people can continue to get things.
