MSM 492 Rosie Weary - The Mendenhall Ministries

After graduating college in California, Dolphus Weary returned to Mendenhall while job hunting.

In this episode, his wife Rosie Weary recalls their decision to join the Mendenhall Ministries. She describes how the Mendenhall Ministries established a 150 acre farm to teach their young people a good work ethic and explains how the food they grow benefits the entire community.

The programs developed by the Mendenhall Ministries have been designed to address specific needs within the community:

  • When local African-American children needed constructive recreational activities, it was the Mendenhall Ministries that found the solution.
  • In the early 1970s, The Mendenhall Ministries recognized a need for their own medical clinic. She recounts how they met that need.
  • As Mississippi schools integrated in 1970, black parents realized the children were not as prepared as their white counterparts. Weary discusses the formation of the Genesis One School.

Weary concludes by pointing with pride to their many success stories. To learn more about the Mendenhall Ministries, go to http://www.mendenhallministries.org .
