William Story 8-3-15

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

William in south central Oklahoma was impacted by flood waters rising to a height of three feet in his garage and a foot and a half in his home.  William had lost his spouse only four months prior and receiving the volunteer help “was a blessing from Heaven.”  His home was flooded twice within a four week period of time and with reports of it possibly happening a third time.  Volunteers assigned through the Oklahoma United Methodist Church Disaster Response Ministry took up flooring as well as sheetrock and insulation half way up the walls.  There was a lot of waste and dirt that washed through his home forcing him to live with his daughter a short distance away.  William said that having this kind of help “makes you have a sense of wanting to give back,” and he fully intends to do just that.
