Quote of the Day: Richard Stearns

Hungerandolderamericans“At a time when jobs are scarce and government budgets trimmed, those who are most in need of assistance are being squeezed. As Christians, we believe private citizens and public institutions should prioritize caring for our most vulnerable neighbors.” 

Richard Stearns, President, World Vision US
