First, the issue of poverty is complex and doesn’t have simple solutions. Rather than expecting quick fixes and programmatic responses, we need patience to make lasting improvement over time.

Second, the issues people face on the other side of the world are the same issues that we face in our own communities. Having a strategy that takes this into account will result in a more healthy, integrated ministry.

And finally, take a step back and look at your global partners to see what they’re doing well, and then find ways to learn from them. There is so much wisdom around us if we are open to it.
