Fresh Eggs

National City Free Methodist Church and Ministry of Jerusalem have provided tens of thousands of fresh eggs to community members.

For the last three years, God has prepared the congregation of Emmanuel Free Methodist Church (Iglesia Metodista Libre Emmanuel) in National City to rise to meet the needs of their community during the COVID-19 pandemic through the Ministry of Jerusalem project. Before the pandemic, the church had developed an active relationship with the San Diego area government and food assistance programs, providing immediate assistance to their neighbors and people in need of food, clothing, and even home construction. When COVID-19 hit, they were ready.

Hear from Reverend Gerardo Ortiz, pastor at Emmanuel Free Methodist Church, and Joe Mendoza, president of Ministry of Jerusalem as they share how God has continued to provide for the people of their community in the form of a food assistance program that feeds hundreds of families every day. Celebrate with them, and find out how you can pray for people suffering both here and across the border.
