Pastor Martin said it’s frustrating, but is encouraging members to stay faithful and hopeful.

“They have temporarily burnt down an opportunity for those students, but God is up to something. God is up to something,” he said.

Pastor Martin said gardening and sound equipment was stolen and two buildings were burned down, including a laundry facility for local students.
