For Anniston resident Contina Anderson, World Changers brought more to her home than a fresh coat of paint and a new handrail. 

Anderson, 43, has lived for 18 years with multiple sclerosis, a disease affecting her central nervous system and making it difficult for her to get around. Friday morning she sat on the porch of her west Anniston home while a team of teens from World Changers, a Baptist-born volunteer group that works on the homes of elderly and handicapped people, painted her house a cool shade of blue-grey.
