It’s been a labor of love for a Beaumont church as they painted furniture for people who received major flood damage to their homes after Harvey.
Since October, a volunteer group at Westgate Memorial Baptist church has helped 13 families.
Three women were working hard this afternoon as they moved, painted and sanded several pieces of furniture.
"That’s what we are trying to do, carry each other’s burdens, help each other and we really do love each other," said volunteer Ronda Cregor.
During Harvey, Cregor had six feet of water in her Northwest Forest home and was able to paint a chair that was donated to her but she said the best part is giving back to other people who need help after the tropical storm.
"People really enjoy giving more than receiving, it’s hard to receive but the giving part gives you such joy,” said Gregor.
Lisa Urban is the woman who is in charge of this project.
"Our church has been helping with the rebuilding that after hearing after that I said after the homes get rebuilt they are going to need furniture,” said Urban.
The furniture was either donated or bought by the Westgate Memorial Baptist Curch.
Urban said buying the furniture was worth every penny just to put a smile on someone’s face.
“The lord put it on my heart because as Christians we rejoice together, we also mourn together and carry each other’s burdens,” said Urban.
The church plans on helping as many people in their church as possible.
