Baker County-  Congressman Sanford Bishop made a stop in Baker County Monday to check on the progress of storm recovery. Bishop's stops included St. Matthew's Baptist Church and the area where six people were killed.

Members of St. Matthew's gathered for a prayer with the Congressman. Bishop told the congregation he's been in touch with Baptist officials and they're working as hard as they can to find funds to rebuild the church. The March first storm completely destroyed St. Matthew's.

"We want to make sure that all of the people in this community who were affected will have access to the services of our office so we can try to help them as they move toward recovery," said Congressman Sanford Bishop, (D)-Georgia.

Bishop also walked the neighborhood in Baker County where six people were killed.

Nine year old Kierra Crumbley and her 2 great aunts, 45 year old Joan Brinkley and 42 year old Willie Sue Brinkley, 40 year old Daron Owens, his wife, 36 year old Phyllis Thomas Owens, and her 13 year old daughter, Kursty Thomas were killed in two separate homes along Pretoria Road and Drennon Lane.
