In other news, Williams said the organization is busily preparing for Christmas.
“We are all geared up for Christmas at Christian Ministry,” she said. “Are you? It takes every minute we have, from Nov. 1 all the way to Dec. 20, to give out Christmas (related help and toys) to more than 700 families, and that includes more than 600 children! It takes a lot of wonderful people, churches and businesses to make it happen.”
