This chapter deals with the rebuilding efforts. Some of the churches were rebuilt quickly; others took longer. Friends, neighbors, and relatives pitched in to help victims rebuild as aid poured in from other parts of the nation and from other countries. Volunteers traveled thousands of miles to help victims rebuild. The help these congregations received was impressive and generous, but unforeseen difficulties hindered the rebuilding process for many churches.
