More praise and news for my new book with Father Ken Vavrina
“Crossing Bridges: A Priest’s Uplifting Life Among the Downtrodden”

5.0 out of 5 stars “A Humble Man with a Powerful Story” Sept. 1 2015
By Sandra Wendel – Published on Amazon.com

“As a book editor, I find that these incredible heroes among us cross our paths rarely. I am indeed lucky to have worked with Father Ken in shaping his story, which he finally agreed to tell the world. You will enjoy his modesty and humility while serving the poorest of the poor. His story of his first days in the leper colony in Yemen is indeed compelling, as is his survival in prison in Yemen. Later, his work in Calcutta, Liberia, and Cuba made a difference.”

    I worked under Fr. Ken when he was the director of Catholic Relief Services in Liberia. I was a local staff and Fr. Ken treated us very well. Many of us cried when they changed him. I also visited Fr. Ken in Omaha. I just ordered the book, I am glad that I came across such a great priest.

      Thank you so much for commenting. I too feel fortunate having Fr. Ken come into my life. I let him know you wrote and he made it clear he is very fond of you. I hope you enjoy the book.
