It's another unexpected and totally normal day for Russell Biven who is standing with two men and a truck in Parrottsville, Tennessee but its what is inside the truck that is at the heart of this story.
It started back in April 2015, when a fire severely damaged the sanctuary of the St. George Greek Orthodox church in Bearden. The same church known throughout the community as the host of the popular "Greek Fest" for more than 30 years.
While no one was hurt and they have created a temporary place to worship elsewhere, items like pews, some relics and the church's organ were all destroyed. That is the reason, almost a year later, we find ourselves in Parrotsville.
It's the third oldest town in state of Tennessee and home to Larry and Betty Lepatka, a couple who want to donate an organ.
"People may think inners! Not that kind of organ."
Biven jokes, prompting two of the most wholesome chuckles you have probably heard in a while.
"That's funny," Larry Lepatka responds.
The donation specifically is a Lowry organ with all the bells and whistles worth thousands of dollars.
"It probably doesn't have 15 hours use since 1979," Larry continues.
Having been blessed in their lives, Larry and Betty wanted to pay it forward and give it to someone free of charge, no strings attached.
"Music is something that pulls East Tennessee together as well as a church." Larry said, "It just all fell together. Betty and I talk about it and decided that would be a home."
Connie Ross, co-music director at St. George Greek church, who doesn't know about the surprise organ donation, says losing that instrument was losing a big helper.
"The organ helps us a lot. We are all volunteers and it helps our pitch a lot of times without an organ. We had a need and a giving spirit for the solution but we still need a little more help to make it all come together."
"What if I told you that a couple and Parrottsville, Tennessee had an organ that is worth thousands and thousands of dollars and wanted to give it to your church for free?" Biven jested.
"Oh my gosh we would be so delighted so thankful." Connie responds slightly confused.
"Well its right behind the door." said Biven.
"Are you kidding me? Oh my gosh. That is I'm just...I'm speechless." Connie says searching for words. "Our whole choir is going to be so excited. I can't tell you what we've done with the little things we've had. This is wonderful."
Back in Parrotsville, Larry and Betty have some words of encouragement for anybody that is thinking about helping somebody out.
"After all, you guys say it everyday 'Straight from the Heart'. I guess that's what we're doing." Larry shares, "It breaks your heart to see a church going up in flames. If you lose everything in a fire, maybe this is one piece that pulls you together on Sunday."
"I can't tell you how that touches my heart. For a bunch of volunteers who can't keep a key sometimes, this is going to help so much," she jokes. "We are so thankful."
"Good surprise?" Biven asks.
"Good surprise!" Connie responds.
