Meridian, Miss. A week-long mission to help others in the community came to an end on Friday night.
Dumont Plaza was the site of a block party and worship service to mark the end of "Love Out Loud." Northcrest Baptist Church in Meridian organized the local mission and with the help of other area churches, the group visited 18 different community organizations this week.
"The words can't explain it," Pastor Dan Lanier says. "You know, being a pastor, to see your people doing ministry. The church outside the walls. The problem is that we become keepers of the aquariums instead of fishers of men."
Organizers are already working on plans for the third annual "Love Out Loud" mission.
