Nearly six years after Hurricane Katrina, hundreds of condemned properties still remain standing as ghostly reminders of the storms devistation. As Lakeshore Baptist Church continues her mission of mercy we have partnered with Hancock County to rid the community of blighted properties.
Tommy Kidd, the county’s Solid Waste Department head, has been working hard to locate homeowners, acquire a “right of entry,” obtain a permit, and oversee the logistics of placing a dumpster on site. We can then step in to do the manual labor that will communicate a world of hope to our comunity.
These images represent the first handful of addresses our volunteers plan to tackle. Through this new partnership, I foresee this job taking at least a few more years to see through to completion. For those planning a trip to Lakeshore, get your demolition gloves and hammers ready. We still have a lot of work to do for the glory of God on the gulf coast.
