The Sharks

The Sharks are ALIVE and WELL! A popular doowop singing group from Amarillo, Texas is making the rounds again in Amarillo, Dallas and soon to be Midland. They are an entertaining a cappella group full of fun, nostalgia, and harmony. Back in the day, they even opened up for Bill Cosby. The Sharks are singing again to prove they are ALIVE and helping CRF by drilling water WELLs.  If you get a chance, go listen to them or do what they are doing—creatively doing something to bring water to people in a famine. If you want to help a Shark get further into water, help us drill a well!   We hope the Sharks inspire you like they inspire us!… Read more »

To some people he is known as the guy who picked the flavors for Starbucks Coffee. To others, he is the one who invented the McGriddle. But at CRF, we will always know Larry Wu as the one who loves children. Over the last few years, Larry has been serving as CRF’s Vice President of Field Operations and especially focusing on Africa. Now he is going back to Seattle to pursue some of his other interests. Larry expressed to me how excited he was to be back in the same city with his family. He also told me that he was so thankful that he had the opportunity to work for his very favorite charity and will stay actively involved… Read more »

Look, We Remodeled

Wow, it’s beautiful! Yes, our CRF building has been remodeled. And it is not only gorgeous—it has a great new purpose. If you remember, a truck drove through our building last year and forced us to remodel. And through the ingenious design of architect Charles Lynch and builder Frank Alfonzo, a masterpiece has been created. Our new CRF building reflects an international look to help people experience the way that we help children around the world. In fact, it is our goal to bring school children from the Panhandle of Texas into our building to teach them about poverty and life in the developing world. Maybe the highlight of our remodel is the third world home. A house has been… Read more »

Year End Letter – Milton Jones

When I think of 2013, I will always remember it as the year that CRF and Bread for a Hungry World merged. Bobby Moore contacted me with the vision of us becoming one. We dreamed together, listed the pluses and minuses, saw how similar we already were, and then knew that we would be better together than apart. I don’t know how a union could have come together more smoothly than this one. Truly, God was behind it.

CRF and Bread are Now One

CRF has valued our great relationship with Bread since the 80’s. Working together in the future is an exciting step and offers the opportunity to do more than ever to minister to children and families in crisis. It just makes sense. – Linda Purdy, CRF Executive Director A letter from Milt – CRF President We go to the same places. We have the same vision. And very often we have the same donors. CRF and Bread are simply going to be better together. We do the same things. One day Bobby Moore was looking at a magazine and noticed that Christian Relief Fund was on one page and Bread For a Hungry World was on the page right beside it…. Read more »
