On the same morning as we were visiting Bible Way for the first time, Maria and I were approached by a woman who actually invited us to come eat at the church. We mentioned to her that we already had plans of visiting the church and she told us she would see us there. Before we parted ways, the woman made sure to tell us her name. She said, "my name is Pearl M. Jenkins, no don't you forget that now. I write poetry, Iv'e written over 80 poems." Needless to say, after Maria and I had finished our networking at Bible Way, we ran into Pearl on our way to the car. Pearl said hi to us again but for the life of us, neither one could remember her name. She told us we were both young enough to just call her Ms. Pearl. When we finally came back to shoot our project, we found that Ms. Pearl was actually a volunteer for the Tuesday "Outreach" program at Bible Way. We ended up getting an interview with her and were able to get to know her better. We learned about the website www.allpoetry.com where you can read all of Pearl's poems.
