A Blog from our Friends at Church of the Palms in Sarasota, Florida

HERE I AM, LORD, IN GAUTIER, MISSISSIPPI

"I who made the stars of night, I will make their darkness bright. Who will bear My light to them? Whom shall I send?"

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord? I have heard you calling in the night; I will go, Lord, if You lead me. I will hold Your people in my heart."

About 150 people in the intimate confines of Gautier Presbyterian Church sang these words energetically on Sunday morning, June 11, 2006. They were Presbyterians from Gautier, from Ocala, from Tampa and from Sarasota. The work teams that day replaced others from Portola Valley, Ca., and Jacksonville, Fl., who left the previous Friday. Presbyterians from Chicago were in transit to Gautier on that Sunday morning.















Brad and Patty Wilson and Joan Geyer helped touch up sheetrock and paint a home that was inundated with five feet of water after Katrina.

















OUT OF CHAOS, HOPE, AND EVEN JOY!


Asked what had impressed her most about her time in Gautier, a young college student from Jacksonville said, "The thing I will remember most about this trip is what a joy it was to get to know the people we came to help and what a joy it was to be able to help them. I am exhausted after spending the better part of a week here, but even as tired as I am, I will always think of this as a joyful trip."

All of us at Church of the Palms can be proud of our contributions to PDA Hurricane Relief, and members of the 50/50 Club can be especially proud of enabling our covenant with Gautier Presbyterian Church. The Holy Spirit is at work on the Gulf Coast thanks to the loving hearts and physical presence of Presbyterians from all over the country. Thank you for being part of this ministry.
