Food Lion foundation donation
SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE
Sunnyside Ministry, 319 Haled St, has received
$2,500 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation
just in time to help feed local residents. Sunnyside
Ministry will use this funding to operate their food pantry,
which has filled more than 5,500 food orders for over
16,000 people in 2015.
"This gift will help us feed those in our community
that are in need of nutritious meals," said David Holston,
Sunnyside Ministry director. "When people are truly hun
gry, they lack the energy to do many of the daily activities
most of us take for granted. They lack the ability to work
and do a job well, or go to school and study diligently.
This gift will bring hope and health to many in our com
munity, and we thank Food Lion for this donation and for
all they do to help alleviate hunger in our community."
Since 1978, Sunnyside Ministry has worked to help

Members of Kimberly Park Holiness Church chat about the movie "War Room" after viewing it on
Saturday, Dec 26.
4 War Room' movie reaction:
'Stay on your knees, just stay
on your knees'
BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY
FOR THE CHRONICLE
Many movies are made to entertain, make you laugh,
are thought provoking and/or emulate life. The movie
"War Room" encompasses all of these aspects. The
W.I.S.E. (Women in Spiritual Excellence) ministry of
Kimberly Park Holiness Church, 1640 SM Caesar Drive,
sponsored a free showing of the award-winning movie on
Saturday, Dec. 26.
"Awesome, faith and unity," were the first words
uttered by Wanda Green a, member of Kimberly Park,
when speaking of what she thought of the movie. When
asked what she would take from the movie to apply to her
everyday life, she said, "Stay on your knees, just stay on
Carolyn Edmond, founder of W.I.S.E and first lady of
Kimberly Park, said she decided to show the movie at the
church because, "It was an opportunity to bring people
together just to give them an 'ah ha' moment that we have
to always be thankful to the Lord and remember that the
word of God is powerful and it's our weapon against the
negative things that are happening in our lives."
The movie centers around the Jordan family, com
prised of Tony (husband), Elizabeth (wife) and Danielle
(daughter), as well as Ms. Clara (mentor and Elizabeth's
real estate client). Tony is a successful pharmaceutical rep

A Bride Worth Waiting For
By the end of this les
son, we will
?Recall the story of
Jacob's love for and com
mitment to marry Rachel.

relationships and the
ways unforeseen circum

faith-based resolutions to

Background: Jacob is the second born twin brother to
Esau (fraternal twins). The brothers were very different in
looks, interest and behavior resulting in a sibling rivalry,
mildly put. There are two documented instances where
Jacob outwitted his brother. He first tricked Esau out of his
oiruingni oy taxing
advantage of him at a vul
nerable time when Esau
was both tired and hun
gry. A meal for your
pleasure ... an expensive
stew (Genesis 25:29-34).
The second act of deceit
was inspired by and exe
cuted with the help of his
mother who devised a
plan to trick Isaac into
giving Jacob the first bom
blessing that rightfully
belonged to Esau.
Realizing what happened.
Esau pleads with his
father to bless him. The
negative response given him triggers a death threat to
Jacob (Genesis 27). Now a fugitive, Jacob ends up 400
miles from Canaan and meets his uncle Laban and falls in
love with his cousin. Rachel is the youngest daughter to
Laban and is a shepherdess (Genesis 29:1- 18).
