Eleos Ministries was founded in 2018 under the name "Where We Begin." This year we found ourselves trying to meet many needs all over the globe, and focusing specifically on a few special individuals who needed a lot of one-on-one active care. We are pleased to report that every young person we spent time pouring into in 2018 has made it into 2019 as healthier, happier individuals.
Here is a list of some things we accomplished in 2018, all because of God's power and provision:
