Visit to Fort Myers Beach

 On Wednesday I got my first glimpse of Fort Myers Beach in person and the damage to the local United Methodist Church there. Whatever you've seen in pictures or on TV, I guarantee its worse in person. Just devastating. 

The Sanctuary 

The nursery next to the altar area 

Welcoming Space 

Main Office 

The Fellowship Hall 

The Kitchen. There's dried mud on the countertops 

The park behind the church is a now a dump site for debris. 

None of the businesses in the strip mall to the east of the church survived. 


Many of the pastor's personal possessions are stacked up by the road in the debris. 

Just hearbreaking. It will be years before this island comes back.
