Stories of Hope: From the FH President



Poverty is the result of relationships that do not work, that are not just, that are not for life, that are not harmonious or enjoyable. Poverty is the absence of shalom in all its meanings.” - Bryant Meyers, author of Walking with the Poor


Meyer’s definition of poverty deeply resonates with me and I can testify to its truthfulness from the many community graduations I have attended. 

This past November, I was privileged to celebrate alongside families in Bufukhula, Uganda. After 9 years, they stand confident in their future and rejoice at what God has done for them. 

The joyful stories I heard from mothers, fathers and children echo in my heart.

In the Spring 2014 issue of Hope Notes, we celebrate the great impact Canadians like you are making in communities around the world. Ending poverty through reconciled relationships takes time, but it is happening.



Together, we have seen 37 communities become self sufficient since 1994. Many of you have been walking with us for some time so you understand the long-term investment and “patient funding” poverty eradication requires.

Through your faithful, relational giving you are changing the future for thousands of families. As you read the many stories, I hope you are encouraged by the generosity of your neighbours and are proud of the progress you are creating.

Shalom,

Ben Hoogendoorn
President/CEO
