GOLIAD – Inspired by a passage from Proverbs, a Goliad High School student has created his own ministry outreach program to benefit the elderly and disabled in Goliad and Victoria counties.

With the help from Goliad, Victoria and San Antonio residents, Ryan Edwards, a junior at GHS, started a scarf and glove ministry to assist residents of Goliad and Victoria counties. So far, more than 50 residents have received scarves and gloves and he’s still busy passing out more.

Edwards’ ministry has a dual purpose – to keep people warm from the cold and to remind everyone to wrap themselves in God’s love. “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.” – Proverbs 3:3-4

Donations that have helped make the ministry a success were received from Shelia Edwards, Sallie Frederick, Flo LeBlanc Stovall, Farris Avery, Julie Nelson, Jo Ann Capistran, Karie Wimberly, Jane Deyton, Rose Flores, and Minnehulla Baptist Church.
