Get Up and Walk

Get Up and Walk

Bringing Christ’s Healing to the World, One Person at a Time

When Jesus came across those who were disabled, he commanded them, “Get up and walk!” He didn’t give them money for food or medicine. He didn’t offer counseling to help them deal with their infirmity. Jesus didn’t address their symptoms. Instead, he got right to the core issue: the power of a loving God to restore their lives completely.

Today Jesus is still getting to the core. For years the church has engaged in charities that help greatly but don’t fully address the entire issue. That’s why World Poverty Solutions seeks to minister in a better way. When we go in his name to those living in extreme poverty, we know his love can empower them to get up and walk—out of chronic despair, sickness and helplessness.

As you partner with World Poverty Solutions, you are Jesus’ voice to the poor, saying, “Get up and walk.” How does this happen, you wonder? “When did I ever help lift an Ethiopian family out of poverty? When did I help a single mother in a Kenyan slum raise her three children?” You did it each time you prayed or sent a gift or told others what God is doing through World Poverty Solutions.

Right now you are helping over 100,000 northern Ugandans escape poverty. You are part of a spiritual awakening in northern India, where we partner to support the planting of 4,000 new churches and energize a village-by-village effort to alleviate poverty. You are helping orphans in Cambodia find loving Christian homes and helping starving families grow sustainable food for themselves and their villages. You are changing the world one person at a time! You can see your impact by visiting worldpovertysolutions.org.

May I encourage you to keep extending Jesus’ healing arms to the poor around the world? Even the humblest gift helps. And 100% of what you give goes directly to those we have the joy of serving. Simply earmark your check “World Poverty Solutions,” or use our secure donation form. God has supplied all administrative costs for World Poverty Solutions so that every penny given goes directly to the poor. Thank you for partnering with us to see the sick and oppressed leaping, thriving and joyful again, through Christ’s healing love!
