It’s getting just as hot in the Wilson Living office as it is outside. Since 2008, many in the United States have been affected by the sluggish economy. Instead of wallowing in our own situations, whatever they may be, many decided this was a perfect time to donate time to help those who have it even worse. While any type of volunteer work is fantastic – not only for your own health and psyche – some have taken the act of volunteering to the next level. One of those folks is Wilson County resident, Greg Holbrook. After a mission trip to Africa in 2003, Greg had the vision to start, Miracle POWER. The goal of Miracle POWER is to offer assistance to the pastors, orphans and widows who happen to be among the poorest people in the villages of Kenya, Africa. Check out his inspiring story and see how Wilson County is helping Greg change lives thousands of miles away.
