After a long road trip, we've finally made it to Jackson! We were greeted by our PPM staff members, church members, and Pastor Andy. 

We are so excited for the week ahead!

We made it!

Thanks Maggie!

Maggie did a great job sharing at church this morning! The congregation loved hearing her "why" behind coming on this trip to Jackson.
Thanks Maggie!

Thanks Brock!

Civil Rights Museum

by Caroline Bazin | March 7, 2021 8:22 PM

After a prayer walk downtown, we made our way to the Civil Rights museum. It was a sobering and humbling experience to educate ourselves more on the civil rights history of, not only Mississippi, but of the United States. 

We're so excited to jump into our first service day tomorrow. Pray for us as we serve with our hands and words!

Morning Ministry

by Caroline Bazin | March 8, 2021 8:58 PM

This morning, our team split up into 2 groups. 

One group stayed at our host church to help with various projects. One of the big projects was filling in an eroding ditch. This was tough work! The other group helped organize a few classrooms inside. We're thankful that we can give back to our gracious hosts in this way!

The second group spent their morning at We Will Go ministry in downtown Jackson. They helped restock and organize their food pantry and also helped beautify the playground and the property!

It was a full morning!

Morning Ministry

Soul Snatchers

by Caroline Bazin | March 8, 2021 9:01 PM

Before heading back to our morning projects to finish up, the whole team met up in West Jackson to serve with Care Center Ministries at their Soul Snatchers event. 

We were able to meet the city's water crisis by passing out cases of drinking water to family. We also shared a meal with locals. The most important part of this ministry activity, however, was the powerful prayer that happened with every single person that came through the line. 

What a blessing!

All Hands On Deck

Mrs. James is a member of our host church here in Mississippi. He is an elderly man battling some health issues. What a blessing it is to be able to come and assist him with some yard work that he needed done! The Lord is good!

Chat With Kevin

Kevin is one of the community leaders here in Jackson dedicated to doing the work of the Lord. We got to hear from him and his heart for the city of Jackson, Mississippi. It was infectious!

Be Bold

by Rudy Bazin | March 9, 2021 2:51 PM

Many of us got the opportunity to step out of our comfort zone to pray for different community members in the Jackson area. We are humbled that God provided us the opportunity to witness for Him!

Fun run in with the Police Chief

by Carlene Cummings | March 9, 2021 7:23 PM

While part of the team was working on a house with Care Center Ministries, we got a surprise visit from the Jackson Chief of Police. Don't worry it's all good news! Police chief James Davis just happen to be driving through the neighborhood and saw our team working and decided to stop. He was so encouraged to see people working on the house and yard. He wanted to tell us how thankful he was to see people investing in the community. Turns out that he is friends with some of the leaders from Care Center so they were able to connect and we got a fun picture together.
