Samaritan recently published the history of how this ministry came to be and what it went through in order to grow and become the wonderful organization it is today. Some of this history I knew from doing my research a couple of years ago, but much of it was new information to me and great to read. I’m so glad the founder pushed forward to get the ministry going even when there were a couple of bumps in the road. For instance, the founder worked for 6 years without taking any pay. That is an example of someone truly dedicated and passionate about his goals.

Samaritan recently had their largest January growth in history, over 5000 new families joined that month. The ministry is growing by leaps and bounds!
