Student volunteers, like Harris Taylor, didn't mind the wet afternoon Friday. 

"Here I am making a difference and its a great feeling because you know that you're changing someone's world," said Taylor,  a student volunteer with World Changers.  

He says his calling to serve is greater than a few drops of rain. 

"You're helping somebody in ways that they would never be helped before," said Taylor. 

World Changers is an organization that helps makes necessary repairs to homes of people who are considered low income. 

"We're able to affect the whole neighborhood because everyone sees it and everyone gets curious at some point," said Harris. 

The group has been spending their spring break helping Ms. Hattie Williams.  They've been painting, moving furniture, and even taking time to pet William's two dogs. 
 
"These kids are sweet and well trained and these are some of the best kids I have met in all of these years," said Williams. 

The volunteers say a higher power is what compels them to serve.  
  
"We got to meet people in the neighborhood. We got to work with Ms. Hattie.  We got to meet other churches and ultimately we got to tell about Jesus," said Taylor Savell from Tennessee.    

Ms. Williams said she's grateful to the volunteers for their help and good attitudes.  She hopes their handy work will bless another homeowner in Birmingham and beyond.
