Hurricane Michael Relief | Springfield Community Church

Kenetha: We’re at Springfield Community Church
after a hurricane. It’s just blown all of our minds, that
wasn’t really expecting it to be this bad and so it’s turned out pretty
bad. We’d stayed because our kids were fine in Mississippi and we trusted
God would take care of us and we couldn’t get back to our people, you know,
so we wanted to be here for them. Eddie: I think the front porch had just left us. That
breeze had started coming, they blowed out the kitchen window when it did, the house
went to breathe, you know, and she felt it first and I’m running the hall
and when I felt both sides I said, “We got to go.” And I probably went 20-30 feet
maybe to turn to see where she’s standing in the door and I said, “Come on
Kenetha.” She said, “No.” We come over to the church and made it inside of the church.
Got inside the church and the church was breathing and this top was just, “woo, woo,
woo.” It was just moving, and then about that time the back wall fell. It was an
experience so we said well we’ll get out of here and we’ll go to the kitchen and
the wind wouldn’t let us get out that door. Mike: Man there’s a lot of destruction
around but where people are hurting and have needs they look beyond themselves
and look to the supernatural to provide, because they came through something that
could have taken their lives for sure. This is a great opportunity to minister
to them spiritually after you take care of their physical needs because they
certainly have to have food and a place to stay and a lot of their places to
stay are gone, gone, just totally gone. Kenetha: We started out, you know, cooking for our
church people, we had about 20 sheltered in the church. People
started coming in kind of hungry and we’d give them some soup, but we were
afraid you know that we wouldn’t have enough and then we decided it was like
look we can’t let these people be hungry. So we got together and we prayed and I
said if we share, God’s gonna take care of it. Especially the
water is what we were really worried about and within about 15 minutes a
truck, I mean a car came up, and I don’t know how they got through.
Their little car was full of supplies. We all just cried because it’s like God
answered a prayer within 15 minutes to let us know that if we share that
He’s got this. Then we knew that was it. There’s no there no need to worry. We’re
okay, we’re making it. Eddie: Then things begin to evolve. We’d been eating potted meat,
and things of that nature there. Then all of a sudden we decided we’d go
get my grill and we had meat that was thawing.
So we just started set up out there and went to cooking. And then here come the
people. They were hungry. So we started making soup. I never knew that stir-fry
would make good soup. We didn’t have mixed vegetables, so we started using
stir-fry and this thing got bigger and bigger then we just kept get bigger and
people started bringing food that was thawing out. We started cooking it, to
where we’re at right now. Mike: In this community, that’s the only surviving
church that I’ve seen. So, it has a great opportunity to reach out and unify the
community and all come together there and it can be a place, a center for
outreach to the community. Kenetha: There never was like a fear of being
left alone. It was like God’s bigger than this and no matter what happens, and I
know there’s some tragedies, but no matter what happens, He’s always there. I
mean He’s, I want Him to understand that there’s nothing that He can’t do.
When He says nothing’s impossible He means it. There is nothing
impossible. Eddie: For years its been known as the lighthouse of this community, a
place to worship, a place that you can come in from and leave that out there
for just a few hours and come in and feel the presence of God and find that
hope and get your mind off of that and get up here and when you leave you leave
with renewed strength, a greater hope that we’re gonna get through this, and
that God hadn’t forsaken us, and He hadn’t thrown us away.
It seemingly not by design but this thing become a central hub and we’re
going for you. Monday we’ve got your truck and another truck coming
so we got supplies coming in. Guy come up just offered us 8,000 gallons of
water for Monday in a tank, that we can distribute out. I just put it
this way, the same God that’s provided for us for years, saw this coming way before
we did. Had people lined up, like you guys different ones that’s provided for us now and
we’ll get through it. We’ll get through it and we’re blessed, we’re blessed.

  3. 1 Timothy 2:11-15 New International Version (NIV)
    11 A woman[a] should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b]she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
