Governor tate reeves says while the coronavirus could have some impact on the magnolia state, he doesn't believe the effects will be widespread or long term.

Reeves says state agencies and business leaders are carefully monitoring the outbreak that started in china.

Furniture manufacturers and other businesses get some parts and supplies from china and governor reeves says there may be some initial impact on shipments of goods.

However, he says he believes mississippi manufacturers have plans in place to deal with any issues the coronavirus may cause.

"just in the last two or three days, the stock markets in us have declined in value fairly significantly, and a big reason for that is not only the inability to get those in china who are producing product to do so, it's also, china is a very large percentage of the world's population, so as consumers, if they are shut down and not working and not earning wages, fear is global demand will decline as well.

Again, it's all speculation at this point and we will have to navigate our way through it , but i'm confident in the american worker and certainly the mississippi worker and in long term i think we will be just fine."

So far there have been no reported cases of coronavirus in mississippi.

All this week members of a northeast mississippi based ministry have been rolling up their sleeves to help flood victims in the jackson area.

In part two of his series "finding hope" allie martin introduces us to volunteers who come from all across the country and all walks of life.

For several days on the jackson relief trip, gale manning was busy assessing flood damage to homes and filling out paperwork.

Nats and another day, he was maneuvering a bobcat , helping clear debris from a yard.

"god has put it on my heart to go out and serve people and this is the way i want to serve people now."

Manning is retired from the us marshal's service and is a part time investigator with the union county sheriff's department.

He has been volunteering with "eight days of hope" since 2016 and enjoys helping people whose lives have been turned upside down by a natural disaster, like the recent floods in jackson.

"once you get there , you pray with them, we always pray with the family members if they are there, if not, we circle up and pray as volunteers for safety and for the family.

When you get ready to leave they got a smile on their face, they know there's light at the end of the tunnel."

Standup bridge volunteers hear about eight days of hope many different ways, some through christian radio, others through their churches and one law enforcement officer from pennsylvania heard about a group of folks coming to his town to help after a flood and he was skeptical.

"i didn't know if they were a bunch of scam artists, or no idea who they were, looked good on the internet, we spent some time with them and fell in love with the people, the organization, so now we are doing mission trips, this is our fifth trip."

And once westover retires in a year and a half, he and his wife plan to volunteer full time with eight days of hope.

Volunteers don't have to have any special abilities, just availability.

"they need somebody to talk to, it's so much, a lot of times it's all built up in them, just yesterday our homeowner came in and she had so much of it built up from the storm and she let it all out and she felt so much peace since she let is out and we praised god together with her."

Eight days of hope volunteers come from all walks of life and different parts of the country, but they all enjoy sharing their christian faith with others through word and deed.

In jackson, allie martin, wcbi news eight days of hope will work in the jackson area on flood damaged homes through march the seventh.

,take vo off top volunteers who travel with "eight days of hope" have to spend very little to make those trips, thanks to partnerships with area churches// for the jackson "rapid response" trip, volunteers are staying at the mississippi district offices and campground for the united pentecostal church international .

The facilities include bunkhouses, a dining hall, and meeting spaces.

The partnerships allow volunteers to serve without t having to spend large amounts of money.

"if they can get to the location, they have someplace to stay and they are fed, everytime it's a different situation and we've been blessed a lot of times always having some place good to stay, a good facility to feed them and a good facility for preparing the meals."

Volunteers must be 18 to serve on "rapid response " trips.

But entire families often join the larger rebuilding efforts, usually months after a natural disaster, when teams help rebuild damaged homes, free of charge.
