Children certainly have the ability to accomplish amazing things - things like raising funds to build water wells, hosting lemonade stands to assist others, and handing out free bike helmets to keep kids safe. These kids found strength and inspiration through faith and community to make a wonderful difference in their communities.
“Poverty is so big. What can I do?”
Jesus once said that we would always have the poor with us (John 12:8), predicting that poverty will continue to be a long-standing issue for humanity. Poverty appears to be such an overwhelming reality that there is little one human being can do against it.
By Rev. Jerry Herships
