Pay it Forward: Pastor donates time to disaster relief efforts
VIDOR-By: Leslie Rangel
As part of Channel 6's partnership with Cowboy Silsbee, this week's Pay it forward winner is a man from Vidor who donates his time to help during disaster relief.
His name is Bruce Lockett, the pastor of First United Pentecostal Church in Vidor.
He says life is not about what you have or how much you have but rather about experiences in life that teach you lessons on how to be a human.
KFDM News first met Lockett on a trip to deliver supplies for disaster relief in West, near Waco.
It's the site of a fertilizer plant explosion that caused the death of more than a dozen people.
They delivered supplies like water and food, but it wasn't the pastor's first time taking up collections and he says it's not going to be the last.
Their latest project is collecting items for the victims affected by the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.
After receiving a nomination for the pastor and seeing first hand his good works not only for Southeast Texas but for people in general we along with Cowboy Silsbee decided to pay it forward to a man who leads just fewer than 50 people at a small Vidor church to give to those in need.
