Matt Hoffmann, pastor of St. Andrews Lutheran Church & School in Park Ridge, Illinois, joins Andy and Sarah to share the story of how he learned a parent in St. Andrews’ Preschool needed a liver transplant, how he decided to be tested as a donor, and how his church community and family supported all of them through the process. Read more of the story on the Chicago Tribune.
