        Church just hasn't been the same the past two Sundays at Potter's House of Prayer in Dayton.
        "It's a little different when your sitting in metal chairs and stuff, anything you can sit on but we had church," Jump said.
     Their pews are a total loss along with bibles and other items.
     Their roof has to be replaced and the walls all need new sheet rock.
     Pastor Gerald Jump and church members have been working non stop on repairs.
        "They're like me," he said, "They aint got a whole lot of money but they've been spending their time.  And that's a whole lot.  That means a lot to us just to have somebody come and help you."
       But they've got a lot more ahead of them and need more man power and donations, since their insurance isn't covering flood damage.
     Though they've been hit multiple times, Pastor Jump believes a blessing can still come out of it all.
        "Sometimes he works in mysterious ways, and when he works, we might not understand it.  But one thing about it, there's always a good blessing out of it," Jump said.
        If you would like to help, you can contact Pastor Jump at 423-305-5912
