Las Vegas Pastor Preaching Unity, Faith And Prayer Following Sunday's Horrific Massacre In Las Vegas

A Las Vegas pastor is preaching the importance of unity, faith and prayer following Sunday's horrific massacre that left dozens of people dead and hundreds more wounded.

Paul Goulet, senior pastor at the International Church of Las Vegas, told Steve Doocy that the community has been absolutely devastated and there are no easy answers.

He said his church has been trying to help the healing process by holding prayer vigils and providing support to those affected by the tragedy.

"We just cry with them. Honestly, the thing about our community right now is we're just saying, 'We love you,'" Goulet said.

He added that they are providing counselors for first responders, victims and family members, some of whom are just arriving in Las Vegas unsure if their loved ones are alive.

"This is a long-term healing process right now."
