Trinity team helps victims of Hurricane Michael

Trinity Church of Marble Hill sent a disaster relief team to Panama City the week of April 7-12 to work with Samaritan’s Purse. The team helped victims of Hurricane Michael, the most intense storm to hit the U.S. in more than 80 years. As the group traveled south, they began to notice storm damage about 40 miles north of Panama City. Downed trees and damaged structures still mark the landscape for miles and miles.

The group stayed in a usable wing of North City Church whose sanctuary was damaged in the storm and will probably not be usable for another year. The Trinity Church volunteers joined with a group from Calvary Church in Cleveland, Tenn. and they worked at seven different locations around Panama City during that week. They assisted homeowners in the removal of trees and other storm debris. Each homeowner was given a Billy Graham Bible from Samaritan’s Purse, signed with words of comfort and encouragement from the volunteer workers.

Samaritan’s Purse has completed over 1,200 work orders over the last six months since the hurricane. They will soon move into the rebuilding phase of their relief work.

Please remember the devastated residents of Panama City and the Bay County area. Contact Samaritan’s Purse or Trinity Church if you would like to help with relief efforts there. For more information, contact Trinity Church at 770-893-2682 or visit TrinityChurchMH.org. Trinity is located at 2685 Steve Tate Highway, Marble Hill.
