The authorities give Texas Baptist Church back to the people
Authorities have the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas back to the people after four days of research.
After four days of investigation, the authorities shall have the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs back to the people. Since Sunday’s shooting in Texas, the streets around the church are closed, and caution tape, and state troopers are keeping the people from the area 24 hours a day.
There is still blood on the ceiling and the bullet holes in some Bibles, according to a law enforcement officer.
Thursday afternoon, state troopers removed caution tape and took their mobile unit research. This allowed anyone to walk next to the fence around the church.
At first glance, workers could be seen, cover bullet holes in the siding that are still visible from the street, and the repainting of the exterior. They also clean the interior in which 26 people, including a one-year-old and unborn baby were murdered last Sunday by a gunman.
The Southern Baptist Convention, tells Fox News that Pastor Frank Pomeroy has the desire to tear the church down. However, the Southern Baptist Convention, said the minister and his congregation would have the final say. The authorities of the church as riddled with bullet holes, and the pastor’s wife, Sherri, said it is damaged beyond repair. But today, employees repairs.
The Pomeroy, the 14-year-old daughter Annabelle was killed in the massacre. Pastor Pomeroy told Fox News that he forgives the shooter.
“To be quite honest I am more angry at the systems than I am with the shooter,” said Pomeroy. “I have a feeling that there may be systems in his life that allowed him to get to where he was.”
The residents of Sutherland Springs and the surrounding area have worked extremely hard this week to continue to pray and continue in their faith. There are multiple watch where hundreds of people have prayed together.
“He was used by a dark power to accomplish something that is outside of him,” said Pomeroy. “We need to stay strong to try to reach those others who are in the same position before they are used by the dark force and can be used by God.”
There will be a church service Sunday morning at 11 am, at the Sutherland Springs Community Center. The services by the week, including one attended by the Vice-President Mike Pence, Attorney-General, Jeff Sessions, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott, have helped people to stay positive.
“Keep watching. How difficult it is or how good it is — but keep looking,” said Pomeroy.
