These pics don’t do justice to the amount of work done yesterday. GPC’s semiweekly distribution delivered 100 pallets of supplies to over 30 different local organizations. We also delivered a furniture suite to a family that desperately needed it. Just another day here at GPC, delivering hope fresh daily!

Headed Home

15 days ago our team pulled into Moore, Oklahoma. Roads were blocked, power lines down in the street, and debris was everywhere.

After getting through the barricades, a trip up Santa Fe Avenue revealed our worst fears: total devastation.

Our team hit the ground running and has not stopped since. 10 tractor trailer loads of relief supplies have been delivered thus far.

Hundreds of trees have been removed for people like Bennie, a disabled veteran and Kathryn, an elderly lady who survived the storm in her home alone.

Entire lots have been cleared that were covered with the remains of what was once a home for Terri and her two children.

New roofs have been installed for families like Tyler’s. He is a 5th grader who attended the Plaza Towers Elementary. Tyler was dealing with the trauma from the tornado that destroyed his school. He was afraid to go into his home because of the roof damage and the mud covering the home that reminded him of the storm. Our team fixed his roof and cleaned his house, and now Tyler and his family are back in their home.

A 52 acre city park was cleaned by the God’s Pit Crew Team to help bring a bright spot back to this city. We also worked to restore a church roof that was damaged so that the church could continue to serve the community.

We left today, Friday, June 7th, tired and weary, but very thankful for the impact we have made. Thank You for helping us Restore Hope.

Although we are leaving, we’ll be back. We have plans already in place to return and help continue the rebuild in this community. 

Remember that picture we shared 2 days ago of the roof? The guys have finished it! These volunteers have worked long and hard hours in the heat to finish this up for the church.  (at Riverlife Church)

We’ve got a new Crew Cam ready to share with everybody, but unfortunately no way to upload it right now! The church has no power which means no wifi. As soon as we can get to Internet, we’ll have a video for you! (at Southern Hills Church Of God)
