Phenix City church makes helping children in Africa its mission

There is a plate of food, perhaps not much more than boiled roots, put in the center of a circle with about 10 orphan children surrounding the plate. What happens next, Golden Acres Baptist Church Pastor Ray Cummings describes as a “free for all” as kids work to get their share. Perspiration covers their faces from the heat of the food because the children fear if they wait for it to cool, they may miss out.
