Miracle in the Desert

Guest post from CRF President Milton Jones’ blog, Through Orange Colored Glasses. The first day of my new job was one of the most sobering of my life. My first task as president of CRF was to get some children supported who had been waiting for a sponsor. On the top of the list was a little girl named Maurine. She was from an place called Barwessa.  When I investigated her needs, I found out that she had died waiting for a sponsor. She had starved to death because of the lack of food and water where she had lived.

Emmanuel’s Sacrifice

 This is a guest post from CRF President Milton Jones’ blog, Through Orange Colored Glasses. Sacrifice. It means that you give up something. But it means that you give up something that you miss.

World AIDS Day

Guest Post from CRF President Milton Jones’ blog, Through Orange Colored Glasses What’s the deal with orange? It’s about hope. But specifically orange was designated as the color of hope for AIDS orphans in Sub-Sahara Africa. Over a decade ago, I made a commitment to devote myself to the cause of care for AIDS victims especially orphans.  It seemed like a hopeless cause. There were millions of them. You got a new one every 14 seconds. There was no cure. It was the biggest pandemic in the history of the world. So is there any hope?
