(ALBANY, GA) – Half a dozen pastors came together as part of the Albany Baptist Minister’s Conference with the goal of feeding more than 400 staff members of the Phoebe Putney main campus, Wednesday morning as a thank you for their round-the-clock work over the last two months.

For Pastor McKinley Drake of the Greater Cutliff Baptist Church, there’s a little more to it.

Pastor Drake tells us, “I have a sister who had to come here because she had the coronavirus for four weeks. They kept us informed, they talked to us by phone and they made us comfortable with the care that they were giving to her.”

The Albany Baptist Minister’s Conference is just the latest group to show their thanks to the phoebe staff as they’ve handled the pandemic.

To the pastors, it comes full circle when giving back to the hospital staff.

“I wanna say that we move forward, we’re driven by the holy ghost, and driven by what the word of god says, and that we don’t try to go this without the word of god,” says McKinley

As pastors and the community try to return to normalcy, they want to promote that even though we still need to stay apart, it’s important now more than ever to come together.

Pastor McKinley says, “This is no time for us to be distant in our minds and in our thinking. This is a time that while we’re practicing social distancing, we need to be close together.”
