COVID-19 Update

 At this time we are praying for God to provide for the many more in need in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Let us all draw closer to the Lord as only He knows the outcome of this uncertain time. It is clear that we need Him now more than ever. We are doing our best to maintain safe social distances with our families, while still delivering much needed food and supplies to them, for as long as we can. If you feel led to donate, please visit our Amazon Wish List below or our PayPal link at the bottom of this page. You can also visit our Facebook page for real time ministry updates.
