of the special things about eight days of hope is its ability to rebuild homes and most importantly hope . in a few days that's exactly what they will be doing in the bahamas. "we have something stronger than what wind and water can destroy, we have the hope of jesus christ." that's only the beginning of what eight days of hope is bringing. hurricane dorian is the strongest hurricane to ever hit the bahamas leaving rubble where homes once stood. "use these kits to take down the sheetrock and the instillation, the flooring, the walls, and to rip it to the studs so that we can rebuild it back." due to the level of destruction... chandler giurley tells wtva they have no choice but to respond making this their first international disaster relief trip. "we can't sit by and we can't watch these people suffer and continue without water and food and homes." ((stand up)) natural disasters like hurricane dorian often times destroy homes and everything in them but eight days of hope comes equiped with washer and dryer trailers to wash clothes for families and remind them that not all is lost. they also bring shower trailers, kitchen trailers, and much more. although disasters like these are natural chandler e says so is their will to respond.
