When the Son of Man comes in his glory he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we do these things for you?’“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’- Matthew 25: 31-40 (abridged)
Volunteers from the Inverness Vineyard Church who had assisted Bill over the years now carry on the ministry. Linda Davidson leads the ministry at its new location: Manna Ministries in Alabaster (Shepherd's Harvest Church, 333 Smokey Road, Alabaster, AL 35007). The Compassion Ministry is currently raising funds for a trailer that will enable the ministry to become a “Mobile Ministry” once again, with outreaches to all the areas served by the Inverness Vineyard Church.
