Update on Letcher County, KY Flood Relief

December 18, 2023

LifeNets partnered with businesses and ministries to help provide relief for Letcher County, Kentucky, residents who lost their homes in a catastrophic flood in July 2022. John Miller, President of Superb Industries in Sugarcreek, Ohio, asked us to assist in the fundraising efforts, which we gladly did.

Since that time through October of this year, we have helped provide aid for extra equipment for the Neon County police department, which had its assets destroyed, and for repairing homes for those who had to be evacuated. 

LifeNets has paid out a total of more than $42,000 specifically for hard-hit Letcher County, Kentucky.

Here are some photos of the flooding and the work that has been done.

The rebuilding project with home has been coordinated with Jeff Sim of Heritage Ministries who recently wrote us:

“We have been busy wrapping up our larger projects and are scheduling work on new ones. With winter approaching, we see the need to assist as many as possible with finishing the final details of their rebuilds.  With the funds we have left, we will be installing floors, trim work, underpinning, appliances, and heat systems. Our ministry has also had other donations of household items and furniture, for which there is a continual need.  We have been blessed with some wonderful work teams from Kentucky and the surrounding states; this week we look forward to working with our first Amish group from western Kentucky. Sometimes, God uses a tragedy to bring people closer to Him; He sends them people who repair homes plus restore hope and ways to deal with their health, depression, drug addictions, and the many other issues we see folks struggling with. We want to thank all those who have sent donations for this work.”

In Christ we serve,
Jeff Sim"

Through Heritage Ministries seven families have had their homes rebuilt and are now back in their dwellings.  

 We want to thank all those who have sent donations for this work.
