Making a difference in Peru … (and buying a cow, too)
Remember that time you went to a foreign country and purchased a cow to offer as a gift to a school?
Well, The Oklahoman’s editor remembers something like that. And it’s documented on NewsOK.com.
Kelly Dyer Fry’s cow purchase was just a small part of her larger nDepth story that ran in The Oklahoman and on NewsOK a few weeks ago. ‘…To the Least of My Brothers‘ which details the Santisimo Sacramento Parish run by Father Joe Uhen in Piura, Peru.
Uhen was no different than his peers at Notre Dame. He had a sports car and wanted to someday live in a penthouse. But he paid attention when the president of the university told the graduating class they were blessed. He told them they were part of the 20 percent in the world who enjoyed 80 percent of the resources. He reminded them there were 80 percent in the world that needed them. That started a path that led Padre Jose to Piura.
I invite you to check it out if you missed it when we launched the page. You’ll be entertained by the cow purchase and moved by the impact one man had on a series of communities in Peru.
