CBNNews.com - A team from some of Lousiana's Southern Baptist churches are helping those affected by the recent ice storm in Kentucky and Arkansas.
Many on those on team were hit hard by Hurricane Katrina three years ago. Now they're giving back, helping homeowners clean up after the storm.
"It's a special thing knowing you can help someone," said Kinney Barrow, Baptist Disaster Relief Volunteer.
James Barrow said volunteering is one of God's commandments.
"That's one of His commandments is to take care of the widows and the orphans and those in need," he said.
And their work is making a difference, one person at a time.
"If it makes a difference to just one person, it's worthwhile, because that's her world," Barrow added. "The whole thing's about love. Just lovin' on people. It's an encouraging thing."
One woman who was helped by the team was overcome by emotion.
"It's just a blessing what they done, honey, really! I cried and cried and cried," she said.
Operation Blessing has worked closely with Second Baptist Church in Muhlenberg County, Ky. delivering kerosene heaters, blankets and supplies for families in need.
