Why FLI?
“I love the mission of Faith and Learning and the opportunities we have to make the important work of so many others easier. It’s not always exciting to think about donor management and tax/legal responsibilities, but our our work shares some burden and lets our projects spend more time focusing on the things that truly matter. I’m blessed to have witnessed the impact our projects are having around the world and couldn’t be prouder to play a small part in their success.”

I love that FLI has a heart for cross-cultural workers. We aren’t just a board making decisions about people and situations on the other side of the world, but we are a group of people who genuinely love and care for our projects..
