TYLER, Texas (KETK) — Texas Baptist Men headed to Little Rock, Arkansas to serve the community after last Friday’s tornadoes.

More than two dozen people were confirmed dead after the tornado outbreak, which tore through through the Arkansas capital.

According to TBM, the deployment is part of a larger effort that includes an incident management team, assessors, a mass feeding team and two chainsaw teams that will leave from different places in Texas.

12 people arrived on Sunday to help deal with uprooted trees on houses, and they are currently on a high priority mission to get help to the people who need it most. On Tuesday, they were working to take trees off a disabled veteran’s home with their heavy lifting equipment.

The volunteers are moving quickly to beat the next round of rain headed their way.

“God tells us to go out and help our neighbor,” TBM Unit Leader Bruce Slaven said. “He said you know, what’s the most important commandment? Love God with all your heart and all your soul. He said the second is to love your neighbor. We are doing this for the love of our neighbor.”

TBM also brought laundry, shower units and a mobile kitchen, ready to feed 3,000 people a day. 40 more Texas Baptist Men members are expected to be sent out in the coming weeks.

TBM has been in service for more than 50 years, starting with providing food in collaboration with the Red Cross behind the scenes and starting to plan recovery efforts.
