The year 2021 brought many blessings to our alliances; those we partner with and the many we are able to provide for as we, in return, reap the benefits of giving. We fondly look back to the many events that touched the lives of those we love and give thanks for the manifestation of resources that have allowed us to serve those in need. God is indeed the greatest provider and our outreach ministries are testimony to the good works one can accomplish in faith trust and the desire to love others.
"Social service is the result of moral thinking and religious living."
