Brooklyn Pastor Willie Billips of Faith Hope and Charity House of God Praying for Help to Repair Church Building After It Was Badly Damaged During Hurricane Ida

A Brooklyn bishop who has spent years helping his community is now begging for help himself.

He’s asking for someone to make repairs on his church.

As CBS2’s Andrea Grymes reports, it was badly damaged during Hurricane Ida last summer.

“I miss being here, I miss my wife standing here,” said Bishop Willie Billips.

Preaching again at the pulpit can’t come soon enough for Billips. His church, Faith Hope and Charity House of God in Brownsville, Brooklyn is in such a state of disrepair they can hardly do anything inside.

“To come into the church and see that going down was really rough,” Billips said.

They were already dealing with burst pipes when Hurricane Ida came last summer, flooding the building. They’re asking for someone to come in pro bono to fix the plumbing, paint and get rid of the mold.
