The Foundation received its tax-exempt status in 1949 but its roots are more than twenty years earlier. It is a network of friends from all walks of life and all ages joined together by our interest in the specific person, wisdom and reconciling power of Jesus. Mission Statement: "To develop and maintain an informal association of people banded together, to go out as 'ambassadors of reconciliation', modeling the principles of Jesus, based on loving God and loving others. To work with the leaders of other nations, and as their hearts are touched, the poor, the oppressed, the widows and the youth of their country will be impacted in a positive manner. Youth groups will be developed under the thoughts of Jesus, including loving others as you want to be loved."
