Local man goes the extra mile to help those in need in the community
PINE BELT, Mississippi (WDAM) – Helping one family at a time is exactly what Troy Cobb does with help from the Bible Ministry Church in Oak Grove and his own carlot auto ministry.
“We are doing exactly as Christ did when he fed the 5,000. When you look around, we have over a thousand Bibles in this room and in the other that we are handing out to make sure that their spiritual needs are met. Because if they are happy spiritually, they will be physically happy, ”says Cobb, who is the coordinator of The Bible Church of Oak Grove Auto Ministry.
The lot has been going the extra mile since 1998. It helps those who need transportation to get a vehicle.
“I took out a cart and was helping people finance and found out that people couldn’t finance cars. So I just started giving them away, and then people started giving me cars to fix, and we gave them away, ”Cobb says.
Now the organization is helping out to help people repair their homes.
“At the moment, we are working on three houses. We do them one at a time because we have a lot of volunteer work. We have no overhead costs, absolutely none. So we try to use 100% of the money for the person in need, whatever the case, ”Cobb explains.
Cobb says he plans to continue helping as many people as possible because the opportunity is a blessing.
