Coincidently, Dr. Alvin S. Perry is returning from his new home in New Jersey, in the aftermath of several horrific crimes which have shocked the community. Two shooting incidents recently resulted in victims being sent to hospital and tragically, one resulted in the death of a 13 month-old.

(BRUNSWICK) In the season and spirit of giving and being their brother’s keepers, Greater Works Than These Ministries did not wait until Thanksgiving to share with the community. This year, hundreds were fed as the result of the generosity extended as early as Sunday, leading up to the first true American holiday.

“There were literally hundreds of people who lined up and churches were there to assist,” said volunteer Fred Wrice. “Thank God they stepped in because based on the amount of people who came out, it is evident that we have to fill a void in the community. It literally brought tears to my eyes to see the amount of people who showed up on behalf of themselves and in some cases, on behalf of others who were physically unable to come and stand in the long lines.” Continue Reading

“ I could see my God working through him, because before I talked to him, I was outside his office telling my mother, ‘ There is no way we can pay for this. I don’t even know why we came all the way up here just to get denied!” God showed me that if you just put your trust in him he’ll make a way. I was blessed to have received the $80,000 Oprah Winfrey Scholarship. All I have to do is maintain a 3.0 and I’ll keep it. That scholarship will pay a big chunk of my school’s cost and take a big load off my mother’s back. Shout out to Oprah!” – Akeem Baker, left with brother Rafeal.

When you first meet brothers Akeem and Rafeal Baker, there is an instant attraction. Both are young, intelligent, witty and charming black men who are excited about life and eager to put their best foot forward. Despite the fact that they are now legally adults, they end their sentences during their interview with me respectfully with “yes ma’am” or “beg your pardon ma’am?”, evidence that southern hospitality and good old fashioned manners from mom still reigns in some households. However, if you’re lucky to engage in conversation with them, one might wonder how it’s possible that the two 18 year-olds are not twins. Continue Reading
