President's Message

problems in our minority communities

As stated in New Way Mississippi, Inc.'s (NWMI) mission statement restoration is a major objective of what we do. As we look at the deterioration of our minority communities we must ask ourselves "What  has happened to cause such a negative change?"  Crime is a all time high, HIV/AIDS/STDs & teen pregnancy is up and economic development is almost of none existence. Once we take a hard look at the facts we can come to the reality that alcohol and drug abuse is at the root of the problem, in many case as a means to cope. I have been working in urban communities of Jackson, Mississippi for over 17 years in a variety of outreach ministries & and non-profit management capacities to include drug rehabilitation programs and rescue mission programs only to confirm this suspicion that many experts have suggested for decades now. My most troubling question, " is why haven't a comprehensive plan been put together to eradicate this problem or at the very least to minimize it?" Well  NWMI along with the help of other agencies have formed a partnership to do just that which I will began to share in my December entry of  "The President's Message".  UNTIL THEN GOD BLESS!

I have been familiar with Larry Perry's work in the community for many years, and I have knowledge of the ways God has blessed his success through New Way Mississippi, Inc. That is why I have become a regular contributor to New Way Mississippi, Inc., never forgetting there are other ministries worthy of consideration. I am aware that whatever any of us does that helps the most vulnerable among us is counted as being done for God. Alcohol and drug abuse take a terrible toll on the lives of abusers, and put at high risk the lives, safety, and futures of their families. Sadly, the risks suffered by members of minority communities is even higher than the risks to the community at large. New Way Ministries hits these challenges head on. Please, if you can find it in your heart and in your billfold to help underwrite this vital and powerful ministry, will you give it your prayerful consideration--and not put it off lest it slip your mind! To God be the glory.
