2015 Benefit: Fighting Through Poverty
Our 2015 Annual Benefit took place at the home of Don Brayer and Patricia Rotchford in Northbrook, IL. We thank Don and Patricia for their generous hospitality in opening their home to HEAL and our guests! Obianuju Ekeocha of Culture of Life Africa commended Rev. Leo’s congregation, the Messengers of Justice, for “getting up each day” to serve poor and oppressed orphans and widows.
Rev. Leo told our guests about his experience as a child and how his education had been interrupted due to poverty. After Leo’s novena prayer to St. John Bosco in 1983, a faithful Christian restored his education via a scholarship to minor seminary. Our guests got the message that HEAL’s mission is from God, who hears the fervent prayers of His people in need.
