Review for Lazarus Ministries at Grand Avenue Temple, Kansas City, MO, USA
Lazarus Ministries at Grand Avenue Temple does a fabulous job meeting the needs of people in the community by showing them the love of God. LM provides food, medical care, clothing, and provides an emergency winter shelter for women. But the most important things LM provides is love and compassion and a welcoming embrace. Those without a home who are otherwise invisible on the streets are welcomed into the fellowship of the church. Lazarus Ministries provides clothing in a unique way - by providing a personal shopper to help the guests pick out clothing from the "boutique" that will not only meet their needs but may also make them feel special. It is a blessing to have the opportunity to serve those in need and to see what a difference small gestures can make in their lives.
