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.

It had to be a bomb. I quickly ran around the building to see what was demolished and what was the source of this incredible noise. When I got to Julie Castillo’s office, there was a truck that had driven into it. Yes, someone had driven through the outside wall and had entered her office.
