Former President Jimmy Carter, who retains strong ties to his small hometown of Plains, teaches Sunday School several months during the year at Maranatha Baptist Church. The public is welcome to attend and people visit from all over the world. President Carter was very gracious and taught a wonderful lesson about powerful women of the Bible. It was an honor to be able to attend and to photograph the Nobel Peace Prize winner.
In addition to his many talents, President Carter is also an accomplished woodworker. The altar cross and collection plates in the church were made by Mr. Carter.

I once met Mrs and Mrs Jimmy Carter at the Carter Center in Atlanta. They were as gracious and down-home as any South Georgia folk I ever met. Though they were hosting some foreign guest, they were nice enough to recognize plain folk and to actually stop and talk with us.
