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.
