I have recommended From Faith to Action to many people who wonder where to begin in responding to the needs of orphans and vulnerable children. This document highlights the importance of partnering with grassroots, faith-based organizations that are committed to family care. From Faith to Action cuts through the misconceptions that often surround this issue and presents important principles in a clear, concise format.

…I have seen first-hand how churches and faith-based groups in Africa are walking their faith by responding with great compassion and care to the needs of children and families. I believe that the Church here in the U.S. has an important role to play …We need to remember that every child is loved by God. From Faith to Action is a wonderful resource for all those with a heart for children.
