Connie Wick:an interview with a grass-roots leader

This is a beautiful interview of Connie Wick, a Bread for the World member who started her work from her retirement community in Indiana.

Her comments at the beginning of the interview really resonated in my heart. She talks about the reasons for, frustrations of, and satisfactions about being an advocate for poor and hungry people. This was incredibly inspiring to me as she is very articulate and sometimes I struggle for words to say why I do this and what an impact I believe we can all have on eliminating poverty no matter when, in life, we begin our work.
