GIFT ENCOURAGES ACCEPTANCE OF ALL GOD'S CHILDREN.
Emma Wooten, 85, jotted down her prayers with Scriptures and put them in her Bible. Then she prayed over the list and asked God to provide.
Her list was simple — but impossible for her to accomplish alone. Wooten’s home was in dire need of repair. She had tried to insulate her water-damaged house with cereal boxes. Ceilings buckled under a leaky roof. Electrical wiring was unsafe.
Thanks to Partners in Ministry (PIM), Wooten’s prayers were answered. PIM, explained the Rev. Anna Troy, “reaches people where they are and works with them to achieve their goals.”
Three main areas of focus include urgent home repair, an after-school program for at-risk children and youth and a resource/referral center for area families. A community garden provides fresh, healthy food for people of all ages.
“Within each of these ministries,” Troy said, “education is a key component” to equip people “to work their way out of difficult situations.” In 2015-16, PIM provided urgent home repairs to more than 40 families, fed over 4,000 families and mentored more than 300 children.
As God answered the octogenarian’s prayers, the PIM mission team from Canaan United Methodist Church, Winston-Salem, N.C., also benefited. “The team and our coordinators,” Troy said, “were extremely blessed by Emma’s love, thankfulness and faith in God.”
