CFCA sponsor donates $8,000 for 8,000-mile walk

Richard Ryder, a longtime CFCA sponsor, sent us this beautiful letter and an $8,000 donation ñ $1 for every mile of Walk2gether, which CFCA President Bob Hentzen finished on June 6. Richard graciously gave us permission to share his letter with you, our CFCA community.

I meant to send this check when Bob finished his 8,000-mile “miracle” walk, but time got away from me.

I first met Bob on my mission awareness trip to Costa Rica in November 2009 to visit my sponsored “young man,” Jesus.

Bob was instrumental in helping me add Jesus’ sister, Kimberline, to my sponsorship, and I’m forever grateful.

When traveling with Bob on our mission trip, I realized I was in the presence of a modern-day St. Francis, only his name was Roberto.

It was then that I told Bob I wanted to sponsor his walk for $1 per mile. I have kept Bob, Cristina and family in my daily prayers.

Please pass on my prayers and thoughts to Bob.

God bless Bob and CFCA.

Richard Ryder

P.S. Bob can decide where this check can support.
