Product Description Bill Kruegler of Troy, New York, was a laughing, playful child, a rough and tough football player, and an amateur thespian. Whether he was playing "Dead-Eye Dick," a detective in a high school play; or dressed in a Dutch costume leading a parade; or a big brother drying the tears of his little sister, he was always helping someone. Later, as a priest, in Bolivia, he climbed mountains, traveled through jungles, visited the sick, consoled the lonely, and always had time to play with the children. His letters reveal a passion to serve people in need, especially children. Happy in his life and work, he seemed to be no threat to anyone. That's why his murder, while a whole town was celebrating, shocked people on two continents. High School students in Troy, New York wrote essays and raised money to build a chapel in his name. Bolivians named a school for him and almost forty years later, they are still telling his story to their children.IF I AM FOUND WORTHY is a book for every person who struggles to be faithful to a commitment to others, especially those who love children and want to see them safe and loved.
