“For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, 'You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.'”
As Christ has called us to serve the poor and needy, Eternal Life Ministry strives to fulfill this call by supporting and volunteering through various organizations.
