GUNTOWN, Miss. (WTVA) — A tornado reduced Lighthouse Baptist Church to rubble more than two months ago.
Looking at the property today, the church is just a concrete slab, but Pastor Carl Estes said the congregation of about 30 does not intend for it to stay that way.
"We can't do a lot until we get the insurance [to come through]. Then, we can make the plans," said Estes.
Since losing the sanctuary, church members have been meeting in homes and rented buildings.
Estes said he and the congregation are looking forward to the day when their prayers will be answered and a new church will stand on the same location as the old church.
