1986 - Behrhorst Study Tours Begin

The First Behrhorst Study Tour travels to Guatemala to visit rural villages and meet Behrhorst leaders.

Patricia O’Connor, by then a BCF board member and a graduate student at Tulane, led the first Behrhorst tour, grounded in our conviction that direct experience would be the most effective and enjoyable means to cultivate friends and donors for our work. Thankfully, dozens of tours have followed, hosted and guided by U.S. board members. Tour participants have become among our most faithful supporters.
