Warriors Center aiming to transform lives
A battle has erupted in North Mississippi that is leading near-defeated men to new lives of victory.
John Edmonds, Missions Pastor at Lifepoint Church Tunica, is leading the fight through Warriors Center North MS, where six men have already began the faith-based residential program aimed at transitioning their lives from addiction to spiritual freedom, homelessness to self-sufficiency, and outcast to family reconciliation, he said.
“By the time they are finished, they are productive citizens. They know their addictions. They know what to stay away from,” Edmonds said.
New fall fundraiser to benefit St. Jude Oct. 25
Poet and songwriter James Durst once wrote, “Help one another; there’s no time like the present and no present like the time.”
Jessica Graves is carrying out that message with an event benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. It will be held at 10 a.m. on Oct. 25 in downtown Tunica.
Graves explained that she began thinking about the fundraiser after supporting the hospital as a Partner in Hope.
‘Threat’ puts county on alert
A statement that was taken as a threat or warning had the town of Tunica and Tunica County on heightened alert early this week.
Tunica Police Chief Richard Veazey said a Tunica resident was told Sunday by a convenience store employee of Middle Eastern descent, “This country won’t be the same after Tuesday.”
The statement was repeated twice to the resident, who reported it to police, Veazey said. The incident was then reported to federal authorities, he added.
“We had to send it on,” Veazey said, for national security reasons, but he now believes it was all a misunderstanding.
