When the walls of Jerusalem fell, Nehemiah began to rebuild the walls one brick at a time. The people told him to come down from the wall, that he was wasting his time. He said he could not, he would not come down for he was doing a great thing for the Lord. At times we feel like our efforts in Pearlington, Mississippi are so small when compared to the amount of destruction that has been done by Hurricane Katrina. But when we think of Nehemiah, each supply drive, each mission trip, each plea for help that we make becomes one more brick of hope as we REBUILD PEARLINGTON....one brick at time.

We get our inspiration from God’s Word. These are some Bible verses that have encouraged us in our journey:

1 John 3:18 “Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth.” Nehemiah 2:18 “And I told them of the hand of my God which had been good upon me, and also of the king’s words that he had spoken to me. Then they said, “Let us rise up and build.” So they set their hands to this good work.”

The little coastal community of Pearlington, MS (click here for map), was all but destroyed by hurrican Katrina which hit the Gulf Coast August 29, 2005.  Every home and business was affected in one way or another by the storm and many homes were left uninhabitable. Most are still that way.  A group of concerned Christians from the Huntsville, Alabama area have become burdened for this community, its residents and their ongoing needs.  Please take time to visit the links given below and email me if you have things to add to the site or if you wish to contribute to the relief efforts in some way.  Almost every month, a team is going back to Pearlington to help clear out houses, provide needed materials, paint, repair and in general, try to give hope where it has been dashed to pieces.  Thebrave families who are left here are trying very hard to rebuild their lives in a place where homes and cars have been lost and jobs are few and far between.
