Miracles of Faith Ministries held an auction and gospel singing in Ackerman on October 19 to raise funds for missionaries in Africa, Mexico and Haiti.

The auction and singing was held at the Choctaw County Community Center with dozens of household and mechanical items.

Miracles of Faith Ministries, a non-profit organization, based out of McCool, is “strictly based on faith,” according to Jimmy Mangrum, organizer.

Mangrum and his wife, Ruth, have served as missionaries for almost 50 years. Their efforts through Miracles of Faith Ministries assists missionaries already setup overseas with humanitarian needs.

We are a part of what they (missionaries) are doing,” said Jimmy. “Our ultimate goal is to preach the gospel,” he added.
