18 Jul Christianity Today Features Hope Unlimited
Christianity Today included perspectives in worldwide orphan care—its history and its future—in its July issue. The direction of the orphan-care movement in Christian circles worldwide is an extremely important topic, and Hope Unlimited plays a critical role in shaping opinions.
