Where do you volunteer?

“I am always doing volunteer work in the Temple/Belton area. I volunteer with Scott & White Hospice with a group of volunteers and we make dinners, do coat drives, and I was the director of the Angel Food project before Martha’s Kitchen closed in Temple. I am from Salado but am trying to put some roots here in Cove now that I live here. I spoke to Cove House and asked about a need. They suggested a coat drive. So, I organized one for our church. I made lots of trips back and forth to Belton picking up coats and picked up several that people offered to donate on Facebook. I also plan to provide gifts for some of the residents at Indian Oaks and Windcrest. Our elderly are often forgotten.

How many hours a month do you spend volunteering?

Why do you volunteer?

The Lord lays it on my heart and I know there’s a need. I want to make sure that those needs are met. This is what God calls us to do. I am inspired by others and the way that they work. I am inspired by Sue Robeson who runs the Scott & White Hospice Thrift Store. I have a heart for hospice. I wasn’t rich when I was growing up and I could’ve ended up being someone in need. I realize how easily that could’ve happened. God gave me drive. He always gave me that ‘I want to do better because better is out there.’ I know where I’ve come from and what the Lord has done for me.

Tell us about your life outside of volunteering.

I have three grown children and eight grandchildren. I am a pastor and I am married to Kirby Lack, who is also a church pastor. I own my own business, which is providing home medical equipment. I travel and volunteer in various states. If I can support someone in need or a worthy cause, I do. I went into business 10 years ago and I knew that’s what I was supposed to be doing — serving those at the end of life. I enjoy dancing, reading James Patterson novels or anything with spy, espionage or action, and I enjoy cooking.
