Resources on Loving the Poor

Here are few things that have been of great help to me:

  1. Framework for Understanding Poverty is great! I got to attend a 4-day seminar going through the material.

    Is had really impacted the lens I use the view the world around me. Very very enlightening. Glad to see it has been helpful to you, too!

    I’m loving these posts in being involved with under-resourced areas of our world/communities.

    Thanks for posting!
