“I have a heart for our city and county,” said Eric J. Campbell. “And our hearts are heavy right now. The recent death of a young girl on Savage Street and the suicide of one of my daughter’s classmates are tragedies. I believe it is the responsibility of spiritual leaders to do something.” Campbell is the pastor at Word for Life Ministries and chaplain of the Walterboro Police Department.
“People need to understand that politicians cannot solve our problems; governments cannot solve our problems; only God can solve our problems,” Campbell said. “People must strategically pray, addressing issues of oppression, depression, diversion and apathy.”
Word for Life Ministries is having a church picnic on Saturday May 26 at Pinckney Park. “We would like to invite the Walterboro and Colleton County community to join us at the park from 10-11 a.m. for a Solemn Assembly. We’re going to meet for an hour of prayer for our community,” Campbell said. “We are urging all to come join us.”

    I am a born again Christian and I know that God is the one we bring our sorrows and problems to. But, the person who shot and killed my great granddaughter, Erica, on Savage Street, was not God. He or she undoubtedly did not even know God. I know it is not the job of the politicians to solve our crimes. But, we do have people who are trained and it is their responsibility to keep after these crimes until they are solved. If they have no idea who did it; there were enough people there that night to know who did. Someone can identify the shooter. I wonder if they even got the names of everyone there. I realize cases like this take time, but please keep working on it.
