I only heard Edith Schaeffer speak in person once. At that time, this extremely influential evangelical woman who passed away this past Saturday was already getting up in years. Since her speaking engagements were regularly recorded, I haven’t had to spend much time with her to feel like we’ve been in the same room more [...]
On March 21, Food for the Hungry (FH) hosted our Hope and Courage conference with participation from Phoenix pastors and church leaders and FH staff from all over the world. One of our keynote speakers was Anglican Bishop Laurent Mbanda, who is bishop of the Shyira Diocese in northern Rwanda. Mbanda (as he prefers to be called) [...]
When I drove across the country from Grand Rapids, Mich., to Phoenix, Ariz., in January 2008 I knew two things for sure: That I was about to start a wild adventure Only God knew where this adventure was heading! My journey with Food for the Hungry (FH) began several months earlier when I volunteered as [...]
A funny thing happened when I went to help change the conditions of the poor in Africa. I was changed. Twenty years ago, I moved to post-war Uganda to do my part to help. What I came to realize was: God’s call for me to meet the needs of the poor also involved His desire to transform my life. [...]
Preachers have often observed that entries in one’s checkbook are the best indication of our true values.

They show our priorities. [...]

Andrea’s Birthday List Jean jacket The latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book Smelly markers Case to hold my [...]
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.
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.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13) The word joy jumps out at me in Romans 15:13. The concept of being filled with joy (and peace) is amazing. How often do we [...]
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 [...]
