It is difficult to consider becoming a missionary to foreign lands, when the nations of the world have literally come to our frontier in the USA through immigration. Notwithstanding, Americans who are under-served in the cities of the USA, our mission is to reach a segment of the population that are marginalized and disenfranchised as well as serve our international partners.
Our community is currently facing very difficult financial circumstances, and many are unable to provide the basic needs of their families. ECO desires to help these families in our own community, so we have established the ECO Pantry.
In 2004 a study by UCLA revealed that there are at least 658,000 or more food insecure families in Los Angeles County. These are families where a parent misses at least one meal for the sake of the children, multiply that number by all of the major cities in America. It is believed physical hunger is also representative of spiritual hunger as well.
Serving others is not as complicated as we make it!
