Jake Parham is another wonderful example of how you can use your unique talents and skills to answer God's call to care for the widow and the orphan. He works as a Home Builder, and he chooses to use that amazing gift to help prepare and lead our Both Hands Project as a Project Manager. Our staff had the following to say about Jake:
"Many people have a willingness to serve. Jake Parham has a desire to serve. He is one of the most generous people I know and his desire to serve and love those around him flow directly from his love for Christ. We could not do projects like Both Hands without men like Jake. I am thankful to know him, to serve with him, and to call him friend."
- Brian King, CFLM Director of Development
