On Saturday, April 6th, we held an 'Evening of Inspiration' with Carla and David Hillard. Carla is a Co-Chair for the Child Protection Initiative of World Vision’s "Every Last One campaign", and both Carla and Dave serve on World Vision’s National Leadership Council. Their partnership with World Vision started with a simple interest in bringing clean water to more communities in Africa and has expanded to economic empowerment and child protection around the world. Together they shared their story of walking with the extreme poor in some of the hardest places on earth.

On Thursday, October 4th we hosted a trip report from our members who traveled to Bangladesh in January 2018. Fred Whitteveen (head of World Vision Bangladesh) also attended and updated us on the status of current World Vision projects.
