Letter from Chairman of the Board of Directors
Welcome to Christian Relief Services’ website! For a quarter of a century, Christian Relief Services has sought to address the Biblical mandate to help those less fortunate. Whether through providing alternatives to homelessness in Virginia, Thanksgiving turkeys to an Appalachian families, funding emergency heat for American Indian families on the Great Plains during the winter, or building new water wells for communities in Africa, Christian Relief Services is making a difference.
The thousands of lives around the world that have been changed for the better by our work. It would not have been made possible without the tireless work of our all-volunteer board of directors, both past and present, our wonderful hard-working, professional staff, our spokespersons, Billy Mills, Phyllis Keino and Gene Krizek, and most importantly our wonderful supporters who have given to us so generously over the years. Without these contributions we simply could not do all that we do. Every donation, large or small, makes a real difference in the lives of people throughout America and across the world.
I hope our website will give you a picture of the truly extraordinary work that Christian Relief Services does. We at Christian Relief Services have been truly blessed by God to have the opportunity to help others and we continually pray for His blessing and wisdom in the years to come.
James J. O’Brien, Esq.
Chairman of the Board Christian Relief Services
