Friendship AME Church proves good deeds can be done despite distance

Cool Story - Friendship AME Church proves good deeds can be done despite distance

Although Friendship AME Church is in Mount Pleasant, they believe that doing good deeds doesn't depend on where you are.

The Servant Pastor for Friendship AME Church, Reverend Alonzo Redic III, said, "We traveled to Florida to a region that has been decimated by all of the Hurricane action that took place many weeks ago; it's apocalyptic, it's one of the saddest spectacles that I've ever encountered in my life."

Friendship AME Church is accustomed to travelling great distances to assist underserved areas. Church members visited Jackson, Mississippi, last month to assist the locals in solving their water shortage.

The congregation immediately stepped up on Saturday morning and loaded a bus with supplies for delivery to Fort Myers.

As the Reverend Redic continued, "And to see such a dire need, there were lines of people that were lining up at this distribution centre at this church receiving water, receiving toiletries, receiving food, receiving assistance with FEMA and other agencies in order to try and provide a somewhat normal life for themselves and their families.

The community might stop by and drop off essential supplies at a storage facility where a collection called "The Lord's Pantry" was located.

The trustee for Friendship AME Church, Ronata German-Turner, said, "And that's where The Lord's Pantry comes in; we are there actually to assist, we're there to bring a glim of hope."

Turner claimed, after a comparable incident, that she assisted because she had once been in need.

Actually, because I survived Hugo, it brought me back to reality. I practically grew up here, so I was present when Hugo hit, and it brought back memories of what we went through in 1989 when Hugo struck Charleston, Turner said.

Friendship AME Church wants to exhort the neighbourhood to always be helpful because you never know when you might be the next person in need.

"The message is that it could be us and that we might be that person at some moment, so let's treat our brothers and sisters well and take all precaution as the Bible instructs. The question was put, 'Am I my brother's keeper?'" And it's crucial that we maintain others in the same way that we maintain ourselves, according to Reverend Redic.

The church is presently organising their upcoming trip to Florida so they may keep serving the locals there.
