Ken Isaacs -Samaritan’s Purse

As Vice President of Programs and Government Relations, Ken Isaacs oversees all international relief projects for Samaritan’s Purse.

On this week’s FIRST PERSON, you hear Ken discuss how God led him from the humble job of digging water wells for his father-in-law’s company, to serving with Samaritan’s Purse.

Ken-Issacs-SmallKen has more than 29 years experience working in the relief and development communities, and his work has taken him to 120 countries. He has testified multiple times before House and Senate committees and subcommittees, including the Foreign Relations Committee. He has served on the ground in response to foreign disasters and aid projects. He has directed major relief operations around the world since 1991, including Samaritan’s Purse work in Rwanda during the 1994 genocide. Isaacs also coordinated relief efforts after massive earthquakes in China and Haiti, and the devastating cyclones that hit Myanmar and the Philippines. In addition, he designed and implemented emergency relief programs in North Korea, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, Bosnia, Cambodia, Honduras, El Salvador, Kosovo, Turkey and Afghanistan.
