In addition, one of Operation Compassion’s disaster relief partners, God’s Pit Crew is in Nashville, TN helping rebuild a church. Their ministry of clean-up, mud-out, debris removal and repair, restoration and rebuilding is vital to helping families get back on their feet and starting life fresh following a natural disaster.

Last week, flooding occurred in the Logan, WV area. Several valleys were inundated with flood waters sweeping everything in its path downstream; some of the worst flooding in more than 33 years. Appalachia Dream Center (ADC) responded with goods and supplies from a semi truck that Operation Compassion sent them. Many families lost something; some families lost everything; other families were fortunate and were unscathed.

Operation Compassion and ADC was the first to respond to this regional disaster. Operation Compassion has developed a long history of responding to the needs of the Appalachian people, especially those living in West Virginia and Kentucky. As recovery and clean-up continues, ADC and Operation Compassion will continue to assist and help were needed, doing everything possible to alleviate the suffering caused by this recent flood.
