It's been more than a year since a well known Savannah pastor, community servant, and an advocate for the people of Haiti has passed away.
While Pastor Freddie Hebron may not be here in body his giving spirit will carry on at Savannah's Christian Revival Center.
"He left such a great vision that it was just so easy to keep the pattern going. We have a soup kitchen that we still serve on Wednesday, we are in the church everyday helping people, everyday they come through the doors, and Haiti is the baby of course that's our mission," said Pastor Kim Hebron.
Pastor Hebron's wife, Kim, is now the leader of their church. She said the mission trips and supplies to Haiti will not stop. Pastor Hebron was in Haiti when the 2010 catastrophic earthquake hit and he spent weeks helping with the recovery effort, an effort that's not complete.
"Once the earthquake hit and the people left and the next earthquake hit somewhere else they forgot about Haiti and of course we still think about Haiti," said Kim Hebron.
Pastor Hebron's outreach touched many lives including Morisseau Mercredy's life. Mercredy grew up in Haiti and said his father figure helped spread hope.
"Many good things, he preached the gospel, and fed the kids," said Mercredy.
Mercredy is helping collect non perishable food items like peanut butter, canned chicken, and bottled water to send back but there's another important donation they need.
"Send the furniture, beans, rice, everything, but never forget to send money too. Without money we can't get the container out," said Mercredy.
Kim Hebron said she has no doubt her husband's legacy will live on.
"When I think about my husband, I say this all the time and the people in my church know I say, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man," said Kim Hebron.
