Though almost everything was ruined in the water, H O P E remained. Someone from out of town that we had never even met was generous enough to leave everything behind and move into our church. Still today our church is being fixed as good as new by someone we didn't even know. Churches from all around sent money and volunteered to help in any way needed. A local church lets us use their building every Sunday right after they have their service. In what seemed hopeless, hope was always there. Hope not in the fact that we were able to restore what was broken, but that we were able to witness the Body of Christ come together and help one another in time of need.
I have seen the difference of perspective of losing everything between Followers and the rest of the world. The Followers have a totally different outlook because
He is the one thing they can't lose when they run to the end of themselves.
H O P E.
In the flood or the fire.
