Father Henry Diesta from Newport News, Va., recently traveled back to his home in the Philippines to visit relatives and family. While he was there, he had an exciting opportunity to meet not just one, but 16 friends sponsored by members of his parish.
As thousands around the world gather to honor the life of our President and Co-founder Bob Hentzen, we are reminded just how powerful a dream can be.
Bob dreamed of a world free from the bonds created by poverty, a world where childhood dreams become reality.
Now it’s our turn to show Bob just how much he impacted not only our lives, but thousands of lives around the world.
He walked with the poor. He believed in the poor.
Celebrations of his life:
A funeral service will be held at the Hermano Pedro office in Guatemala at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 12, 2013. His body will be laid to rest at the San Lucas Toliman Cemetery.
At this time, a memorial mass is tentatively scheduled to be held in Kansas City later this month. We will continue to update you as arrangements are made.
