Choice of new Mission director a good one

The Clarksburg Mission has a new director, someone with the type of background that should be helpful in fulfilling her duties.

Yvette Jones graduated from West Virginia University with degrees in social work and communications. Eight years ago, she became an ordained minister.

"I really enjoy helping people," she said. "When I went into ministry, I knew God made my hand to help people. And that's what I do."

And certainly her new job will give her plenty to do. The Clarksburg Mission serves as many as 400 meals a day to the needy. It also provides a place to sleep for a dozen or more people and gives them clothing. Mixed with the helping hand is an equal dose of the Gospel.

"All of the people who come into the mission are looking for comfort," she said. "All of their problems have a spiritual nature to them. I just help them get through these problems."

Jerry Berardi, a member of the Mission's board of directors, has high praise for Jones. "The open heart she has for the homeless will lead her to do a wonderful job," he said.

Berardi believes the board made the right choice in Jones. We think so, too.
