what little we had, we shared and we gave. Now, God has blessed us with this wonderful Lumen Christi Award,” said Sister Johnna. “The money is greatly needed, but the Light of Christ really touches us. God always comes through with blessings for us and that’s the way we’ve learned to live. We’re depending on God—and that’s what people around here do.”

Through it all, the Sisters themselves feel blessed by their ministry. But it’s the people of Kingstree that feel blessed by them.

“The Sisters have really inspired our community; all our churches are getting together and committing to helping the Sisters,” said Ricky Burrows, Mayor of Kingstree. “The Sisters have been an asset to Williamsburg County and Kingstree. Without their work, I don’t know what this section of town would have been like if they had not been here.”
