Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints put in nearly 1,700 combined volunteer hours over the weekend in Rolling Fork, Mississippi.

On Saturday and Sunday, members of the church traveled to the small community that was heavily damaged by a tornado a week prior.

As the members arrived, they connected with the Cajun-Navy to begin the process of disaster relief.

The crew, built of ages 14 and up, worked on mostly debris removal along with some light chainsaw work. The church also graciously donated all the tools they used to the Volunteer Resource Center.

66 members volunteered on Saturday along with another 75 on Sunday, as some came from as far as Arkansas and Louisiana to serve.

Mayor George Flaggs Jr. also stopped by the church on Sunday morning for prayer and devotion before the crew went off to serve.

The efforts the church put in over the weekend is just one example of individuals coming together and working hard for the greater good.
