Glorifying God by assisting churches to achieve their local and international mission objectives.
One in five people in this world live on less than the equivalent of CDN $1.31 per day. Almost 50% of the people in Sub Saharan Africa try to exist on that meager amount of income. Liberia has 83.8% of its people living at that level.* The people of Togo are not far behind. What should be our response to these challenging facts?
Jesus said that we will always have the poor with us. That means that in every generation we have opportunity to serve the poor. As Christians, we have a responsibility to focus on the relief of poverty as one of our major priorities. Christ set the example for us to follow: "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes, He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich" (2 Corinthians 8:9). Jesus made our spiritual poverty His priority.
