One of the greatest joys of work in these fields is the people you find yourself laboring alongside. Case in point: the three remarkable individuals now joining the Christian Alliance for Orphans’ board.
Each is a highly-esteemed leader in their own right — wise, respected and Christ-hearted; each is also deeply committed to working together for a vision larger than any one organization could achieve alone.
The CAFO Board takes great pleasure in welcoming:
