“God, open my eyes and show me how I can serve you.”

Just a few years ago, my journey with Food for the Hungry started with that simple prayer. That prayer was answered at an International prayer breakfast held at Windsor Castle, when a United States federal judge asked if I would be interested in joining FH’s board.

God answered much more than my simple prayer. He answered a need of my heart that I didn’t know to ask for.

My husband and I are Swiss. For years he and I journeyed around the world due to his responsibilities as president of an international company. I watched poverty pass me by while looking out the windows of limousines. But I had no idea how to respond to what I witnessed.

Through Food for the Hungry, the Lord showed me how I could get involved in addressing the root issues of poverty in a meaningful way. Not only did He open the door for me to sit at a board-room table, but He involved me in a ministry that is so much more than hand outs. It’s about changing hearts, minds and sustainable solutions to overcome poverty.

I tell you of this story not simply to encourage you, but to affirm the way you have responded to the needs of many, and thank you for your partnership with FH.

Throughout this annual report I hope you have been reminded that, when you give to FH, the investment will be used prayerfully, professionally and for God’s purpose. I hope that your partnership with FH is as great of an answer to prayer in your life as it has been in mine.


“God, open my eyes and show me how I can serve you.”
