What people are saying about Helping Without Hurting in Africa

“Thank you for the theology of Jesus bringing us a Kingdom, and the aspect of living a Kingdom life where we are as we hope for the future consummation.”

Pastor Tonny

“Learning about the four types of poverty has helped me understand what it means to help other people. In the name of helping someone and not doing it right, I may end up experiencing other kinds of poverty because of not investigating exactly what is needed to be done.”

Pastor Rogers
