The following note was received from Dr. Randy Smith, pastor of the Sebring, FL, Grace Brethren Church. The Sebring church is in the process of beginning a Bible institute–that is one of the buildings he talks about here.
The three hurricanes that passed through Sebring have all left their mark, but none more than Jeanne.
She left us without a youth center roof, and with a thoroughly soaked building at the Bible Institute. Yet, we believe the building will be back on track within three weeks, as we have crews working tirelessly to both aid all of the people of Grace and these projects.
Without a doubt this has been a challenge, but one our folks at Sebring have risen to! We have had greater opportunity to minister than at any time in my life.
The war experience in Israel was definitely a training ground for the torn-up landscape in Central Florida. God is faithful, and many Brethren have been contributing to the cleanup effort by donating through Global Vision Outreach, Inc. (the mission that is partnering with Sebring Grace for the Bible Institute).
Anyone interested in helping with labor, prayer or funds can get in touch with us by our just restored phone service at 888-880-8538.
