Response from ministry

Comments from Col. Bill Collins, the Founder of Children's Medical Ministries:

Erma and I are quite often asked the question, "How does CMM do all of the projects and activities without a paid staff?" The answer is obvious ... our daily co-laborers work for the Lord! The paychecks are nil but the benefit package is "out of this world." I Timothy 6:18-19
