Microenterprise and missions

Posted in cross cultural mission at 5:55 PM by alexlozada

At lunch today, Bryan and Kelly Brock (Christian Missionary Fellowship) shared their vision and heart for their prospective work in Nairobi, Kenya.  Bryan and I had thought-provoking discussion about Community Health Evangelism  and the role of micro-enterprise in long-term culture change to remedy poverty and the AIDS crisis. Bryan recommended William Easterly’s The White Man’s Burden as a rebuttal to Jeffrey Sach’s  The End of Poverty

Part of becoming a better disciples means using my resources (money and maybe talent at making money) to advance the kingdom.
