  1. The CFCA staff we encountered in El Salvador 2 weeks ago were the kindest, most considerate and loving people I have ever met! Henry and his team were absolutely incredible and delivered the most beautiful, life changing week of our lives. Words cannot express our gratitude for their graciousness! Can’t wait to see you all again!

    1. Every time one of our sponsors decides to accompany our journey, in one of our Awareness Trips, among sponsored members and their families, this becomes a sign that a better future is possible for them because they are not alone! Thank you for walking in the footsteps of our people.

  2. We have been involved with CFCA since 2002 and cannot say enough good things about the people we have been blessed to meet along this road. We could start listing everyone by name but would run out of room because whether or not it is the staff in the US or “in country” we have been so impressed with the compassion you have every day for the sponsored. Count us as Big Fans of CFCA. God Bless each and everyone of you. Bill and Karen Schneider
