Volunteers shared the love of Christ on the final day of deployment, and a mother and son gave their hearts to Jesus.
When a disaster relief deployment is coming to a close, it can be easy to become caught up in the myriad of final details of breaking camp.
“This was a great deployment with good numbers of volunteers, and God was honored,” said Bruce Poss, program manager for Samaritan’s Purse. “They loved on homeowners and showed them the love of Christ. And God blessed.”
Samaritan’s Purse had teams out serving Sevier County from December 5, 2016, to January 4, 2017. Six hundred thirty volunteers served more than 9,700 hours to come alongside homeowners devastated by the deadly wildfires that decimated this resort city. We completed 122 work orders and rejoice that 22 individuals were saved by God’s grace.
Please continue to keep Gatlinburg area residents in your prayers.
