More help has come to aid the victims hit hard by June's flood...this time in large numbers.

"What we do is go to different places every year around the country and volunteer in different ways and assist people and assist churches." said volunteer Todd Rader.

Mission Fest is an annual event put on by the Southern Baptist Convention Women's Missionary Union and this year they have come to help some of the flood victim's in Bell County.

"It means a lot because I'm not able to do it because i have bad health and having this help is really wonderful." said Patricia Poore, one of the many people receiving the help.

From tearing out walls to cleaning up debris more than one hundred and forty volunteers showed up representing twelve different states and officials say another group is expected in just a couple weeks.

"We are removing dry wall that was inside the house and at a different time another team is going to come in a couple weeks and install new dry wall." adds Rader.

And finally put smiles back on many faces.

"I just thank the Lord that he seen to it that we got through it all." Poore said.
