Welcome Philip to the Water Team!

Philip Keter recently joined Hope Water Foundation International (HWFI), our Kenya-based water drilling company, to manage the operations and local management of the company.

CRF Sundays

Have you had a CRF Sunday at your congregation? Let us know if you would like Milton to speak at your gathering! If he can’t make it on a specific Sunday, Bobby Moore or Kevin Wasner also give inspiring messages of hope filled with CRF stories. Listen what others are saying about having Milton visit their church! – CRF Team     Partnering with CRF is one of the most significant things we have ever done as a church!

Welcome Kevin!

God has been preparing Kevin Wasner for all of his life to be the new Executive Director of Christian Relief Fund. My first knowledge of Kevin came when Rick Atchley told me of one of the members of the Hills Church who had written— “Ever since Milton Jones’ last visit to The Hills, I believe I’ve been prompted to get involved with CRF or a ministry like it. The feeling was stirred again when I read a recent CRF newsletter story chronicling Milton’s recent trip to Liberia. I could see, hear and even smell the scenes he was describing, as my wife and I used to live in neighboring Sierra Leone.” Of course, it was Kevin. Rick’s analysis of him… Read more »
