"I kindly live in a community where it is hard to get people to go to church. Maybe God is trying to show them something," said the church's minister, A.Y. Mills.
The minister of Jeff's Creek Baptist says despite their tragedy...he sees a silver lining, saying he believes in a greater purpose behind the tragedy.
