    Storehouse Expert

    Hurricane Rita was no match for Jacob W. During the days immediately following the hurricane, Jacob spent as many as 12 hours each day helping in the bishops’ storehouse, stocking shelves with supplies for relief agencies and for people in need. Sometimes he worked with his father, sometimes with his mother. “I got so good at it that one man called me an expert,” Jacob says. “It felt good to help people get the food they needed.”
