I've known Jim and April Jurgenson, founders of The Boaz Project, for 20+ years; they are full of integrity. Rarely do you meet people as passionate and creative about "defending the defenseless" as they are. The Boaz Project is a ministry to orphans AND their caregivers in Russia, India & Kenya. They've made a huge impact on the lives of hundreds if not thousands of orphans in desperate need. I unreservedly give them the highest recommendation.
