Bob Shoemaker, a member of the Grace Brethren Church in Canton, Ohio (Joe Cosentino, pastor) has followed hurricane recovery work at Pearlington, Miss. since the students at Momentum 2007 participated in rebuilding efforts there. In fact, he led a group from Canton to the area in January of this year. (Click here for more details about the trip.) He provides information about the area in the aftermath of Hurricane Gustav.
Although I have not heard directly from Pearlington, I have heard from Waveland and Hattiesburg. They are doing well and the only damage in Waveland is in the low lying areas. When I hear from Pearlington, I will send it on.
