What can one person do? Be inspired as I interview Andy Perkins around what he is doing to help the children of Libera. Check out these incredible stats:
Founder of BESTWA, Andy first traveled to Liberia in 1998 to help with a pastors' conference, and has been returning ever since. After working in various capacities to meet the practical needs of the Liberian people, Andy founded BESTWA.
In January 2005, Andy was diagnosed with cancer told to get his affairs in order. Through that Winter and the following Spring he went through surgery, chemotherapy, and drastic dietary changes to fight the cancer. Happily, Andy has been cancer free for 8 years.
Andy's passion for the wonderful people of Liberia is what drives him most. He currently works full time as the Executive Director for BESTWA in the U.S. with multiple trips each year to Liberia.
Andy and his wife Teresa have 6 children and 9 grandchidlren. You can find Andy at www.Bestwa.org or through Twitter at @LiberiaAndy.
It's good to talk.
