Business or economy class? This is a very relevant question in relief and development work around the world. I recently hosted a friend who flew business class to the United Kingdom per his organization’s policy on international flights. The price difference from business to economy for his five-hour return flight was about $8,000, so naturally [...]
Please pray for peaceful elections in Kenya. Elections are only a means to both a moral and political end. We must pray that Kenya’s elections are conducted in peace. And that the culminating decisions of the nation, comprised of the millions of individual votes, cast by its own citizens, is a vote for the reign of peace.
Question: How many rabbits does it take to make a difference in a child’s life? Two, if they hop right to it. Week 3: 2 Rabbits When we landed on the page in the FH gift catalog, Julia (5 years old) exclaimed, “Oooooh! Let’s get rabbits!” The kids are excited about the impact rabbits can have in [...]
If you were a female living in Bangladesh, you would face a multitude of troubles such as vulnerability and discrimination. If you happened to also be of a low caste, an ethnic minority and a poor family, your challenges would severely increase. And when a cyclone wreaked havoc on your community, destroying the few resources you had — you would be devastated. Find out how Food for the Hungry brought hope in these circumstances.
On March 7, 2012, the PBS NewsHour ran a piece with this title about women in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

One of the joys of working for an international organization like Food for the Hungry (FH) is that I read constantly about places I’ve never visited. They come alive for me via reports, proposals and e-mails from distant colleagues. Yesterday I visited a place that has a special place in my heart, called Lespinasse. It’s [...]

Traditionally, fasting is a time of abstinence from something, generally food or drink. The purpose is to practice self-restraint and to focus on God. The idea is [...]
Moving day. We’ve all been there before. Boxes, packing tape, storage units and sore muscles. I’ve been asked to help others move more times than I care to remember. However, if I’m available, I graciously volunteer to help. I know that someday I too will need to move and would appreciate the “muscle support” of [...]
My girls I have the incredible honor to be “dad” to two tween girls. By nature I want to protect them. As a steward before God, I take my responsibility to protect them even more seriously. I protect because they’re precious both to me and to God who gave them to me. My girls are growing up [...]
