TWO NEW HOMES FOR TORNADO VICTIMS IN ROLLING FORK, MISSISSIPPI, WILL SOON BE BUILT BY GOD’S PIT CREW STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS
DANVILLE, VA. (September 20, 2023) – God’s Pit Crew is delivering hope, healing, and restoration as they redeploy to Rolling Fork, Mississippi, to rebuild two homes for families who lost everything in the catastrophic and deadly tornadoes that ravaged the town earlier this March.
A team of God’s Pit Crew staff and volunteers left headquarters in Danville, Virginia, on Wednesday, September 20, to travel to Sharkey County, Mississippi, with all the materials needed to rebuild and fully-furnish two new homes for the Nichols family and Berdley family who have been displaced since the tornadoes occurred six months ago. The team plans to remain until Friday, October 6, with the home reveals tentatively slated for Thursday and Friday morning.
“After the tornado hit, my mom called and said, ‘Jessica, we’re stuck under a wall. The whole house is gone. We can’t move – we can’t get out. We need help,’” Jessica Berdley told while recounting the impact the tornado had on her family that traumatic night. “God was with us that night,” said Berdley.
Once this rebuild project is complete, God’s Pit Crew will have supplied and built seven homes for families throughout the country so far this year – and all homes are provided at no cost to the families receiving them. God’s Pit Crew President Randy Johnson says that they are grateful for everyone who makes projects like this possible through their generosity and support.
“Our ministry wouldn’t be able to provide hope for devastated families if it weren’t for the care and support that is so graciously shown to our group,” remarked Johnson. “Projects like this wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for our wonderful volunteers, donors, and supporters.”
Along with building these two homes, God’s Pit Crew has built two other homes already this year and provided three modular homes to families in both Kentucky and Texas, as well. The organization has also responded to 12 disaster situations since the start of the year and delivered over 60 tractor-trailer loads of relief supplies.
