tornadoSome people are taking it easy this holiday season but others are helping their fellow man.

Just two days before Christmas, severe weather damaged several parts of the country, including the tornado-struck town of Holly Springs, Mississippi.

It wasn't long before volunteers showed up to remove debris and repair homes after the tornado, tracked on the ground for 130 miles, ripped through North Mississippi on Dec. 23.

Some volunteers went to Holly Springs as part of "Hope Reigns," a rapid-response team from parent ministry Eight Days of Hope.

Eight Days founder Steve Tybor told American Family Radio Talk this week that the ministry will be in Holly Springs for several more weeks and more volunteers are welcomed.

Trained chainsaw operators are on the ground at work, and even help with dragging tree limbs is needed and appreciated, Tybor said. 

Eight Days will be accepting volunteers, 18 years and older, through January 9.
