5 years ago our church decided to step up our involvement with the poorest of the poor. After interviewing several organizations, we selected BHI to help us facilitate a partnership with Outreach Community Church in Kenya. From day 1 our experience with BHI has been EXCELLENT! Craig is a phenomenal leader with a fantastic vision for serving the poor. The staff and those on the ground in Kenya were consistently phenomenal. I could not give a stronger recommendation.
