The co-founders, Roe and Mayfred Nall (RMN), were reared by parents whose only source of income was from domestic work. Neither mother ever made over $18.75 a week from domestic work. Roe, an only child, obtained earned degrees through the doctoral level. Mayfred, was the first among her seven siblings to obtain a bachelor’s degree and an advanced degree. This husband and wife team readily recognized and acknowledged that they could not have reached these successful milestones in life except by the Grace of God; through the prayers of their mothers; their individual and collective prayers; and the loving and kind support that God provided for them through others.
Through others, they experienced the mercy and faithfulness of God. A direct quote made by Roe in behalf of their family as he and Mayfred sought to establish a ministry to help others as they have been helped: “God has been faithful to our parents, us and our children all these many years. He always had someone to help us with the challenges of life. These individuals met or assisted us in meeting our needs. Everyday, all through our lives, we have seen and experienced the new mercies of God.”
On Friday, November 29, 2013, through a great desire to expand their help to others as they had been helped down through the years and a desire to address the needs of those who may be struggling with the challenges of life either through need for food, clothing, shelter, financial assistance, or spiritual guidance, guided by much prayer, meditation and encouragement from reading God’s Word, Reaching and Meeting Needs (RMN) Worldwide Ministry, Inc. was official implemented. The Nall family made the initial gift. Their faith was and is that if they plant the initial seed into the ministry, others who witness or hear of the ministry and its effectiveness would become faithful supporters of the ministry. God has honored that faith. The ministry functions through the loyal support of sponsors without the Board of Directors having to make special appeals or request for assistance.
The mission of Reaching and Meeting Needs Worldwide Ministry, Inc. is to provide spiritual and financial assistance, and in-kind services to struggling individuals by doing all the good we can, by all the means we can, in all the ways we can, in all the places we can, at all the times we can, to all the people we can, as long as ever we can.
