Members of the Lundale Freewill Baptist Church in Logan County are wondering who shot a statue of Jesus in front of their building.

They noticed a bullet mark on the forehead of a statue of Jesus.

The church is located along Buffalo Creek.

The church's pastor Bobby Adkins says he isn't angry, just disappointed that someone would do such a thing.

"As far as I know we don't have an enemy in that community or even on Buffalo Creek. If I do I don't know about it," Adkins said.

Adkins said he isn't planning to press charges but would like to speak to the person responsible and invite them to church services.

Teens from the church had recently repainted the statue.

The shooter might have been drunk or just plain angry. People sometimes think that they are “owed” something in life. They seem to fail to accept what life/God dishes out. We can’t know God’s plans; we can only do our best to be our best, for Him.
