Preaching and Poverty

From our very earliest days in Colombia, we have been shocked by the poverty we saw and determined to help transform the lives of as many families as possible. We have worked to eliminate poverty in several specific ways. First of all, the preaching of the Gospel helps to lift people out of poverty. Much poverty is causes or exacerbated by the vices endemic to a worldly life style. When a man becomes a Christian he conquers alcoholism and the other typical vices that absorb so much of his time and money.
