An open letter to CFCA President and Co-founder Bob Hentzen from Kansas City.

From left, Cristina Hentzen and CFCA President Bob Hentzen.

Dear Bob,

Happy 75th birthday!

You’re the president of CFCA, but to many of us you’re also a friend ñ one who takes the time to meet us at our desks, shake our hands, smile and ask how our day is going.

Without your vision and those friends and family who founded CFCA with you, we wouldn’t be here today.

Because of you and our sponsors who have partnered with CFCA, we are privileged to serve more than 300,000 individuals and their families living in poverty.

We want to keep serving and growing ñ thanks to your courage and faith.

Godspeed to you, Cristina and all those with you on Walk2gether. We’re sure they will help you celebrate your birthday in Chile!

Peace from

All of us at CFCA in Kansas City
