Roper Cox, a Panhandle rancher, had this to say about Texans on Mission: “Y’all came rolling up with hay and hugs and became family.”

Wow! Cox felt the love behind the hay and hugs, and that does make us family.

And, it so happened that part of the TXM hay donations came from her brother's church.

Chase Pope, pastor of Wood County Cowboy Church near Quitman, said they had no idea the hay would be distributed at his sister’s ranch.
