Breathitt County, Kentucky


A number of volunteers from Oil Creek Association participated in a recent disaster relief trip to Breathitt County, Kentucky. Lost Creek Free Church flooded up to one foot below the peak of the roof when the water level rose nearly 50’. The team served with Samaritan’s Purse to clean debris and spray for mold. Originally there was little hope for the restoration of this church due to the lack of money. The basement was completely mudded out and cleaned and the sanctuary can be renovated. Others will come after to complete interior work. Volunteers included Susan & Mike Bartlett [Delaware Baptist Church], Dennis Horne, and Karen Miller [Wayne Park Baptist].
