Appendix D - Acknowledgements



Barna Group is incredibly grateful to Jimmy Mellado and Compassion International for their partnership on this study. Their commitment to excellence in the long-term and holistic development of children around the world is an example and a beacon, within the Church and beyond. We are especially thankful to Jerry Henderson, Jessica Engel, Ben Rough and Deb Krumland, whose collaboration made this project possible.

We appreciate the time and insights of our expert interviewees and contributors who bring this data to life and, more importantly, are heroes in the daily work of poverty alleviation: Mark Bowers, Dan Brewster, John Cortines, Emi Hernandez, Susan Mettes, Jessy Padilla and Michele Wymer.

The research for this study was coordinated by Brooke Hempell and Traci Hochmuth. Under the editorial direction of Roxanne Stone, the writing team includes Susan Mettes and Alyce Youngblood. Doug Brown proofread the manuscript. Chaz Russo designed the cover, and Annette Allen created the interior layout and data visualizations. Brenda Usery managed production.

Additional thanks for the support of our Barna colleagues: Amy Brands, Bill Denzel, Aly Hawkins, Pam Jacob, David Kinnaman, Steve McBeth, Elise Miller, Caitlin Schuman, Jess Villa and Todd White.
