Yvonne Brown, mayor of Tchula, Miss., was the keynote speaker at a missions luncheon at First Baptist Church of Meridian.
The main topic was poverty.
"When we think of poverty, a lot of times we think of those who don't have any clothes and are barefoot and what have you. But there are several levels of poverty; it can be poverty of mind, poverty of spirit, and financial poverty," Brown said.
Brown said she does not believe poverty will be eradicated, but that it does give us a reason to serve those in need.
