As International Samaritan continues to grow and extend its services around the world, words of encouragement roll in from leaders within the faith community. Most recently we received a letter from the Vatican, signed by Cardinal Peter K. A. Turkson, President of the Pontifical Council for Peace and Justice.

Cardinal Turkson believes the work of International Samaritan is admirable and essential. He states in his letter: “In reaching out to these most vulnerable brothers and sisters, in ministering to them with love and spreading the word about their plight, you proclaim a faithful witness to the Gospel. By sharing your ministry in collaboration with campus ministries and Catholic institutions, you express in deed the love of God for his people.”

We do hope to continue showing God’s love through our service. Cardinal Turkson sends us his prayers and we ask that you send yours, too, as there are countless souls in need our help.
