by Julie Bracken, Compassion Caller Coordinator.
For the last year, over 40 members of Messiah have been involved in the Compassionate Caller ministry. These caring individuals have each called ten households regularly to keep the connections to Messiah strong. The callers asked for prayer requests and made sure that the households' physical needs were being met. None of us thought this would be necessary for more than a couple of months, but this ministry lasted more than a year. The people of Messiah were ready to meet each other's needs during the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic.
