Intro: Love > Poverty
Sometimes we look at the issues surrounding poverty around the world and feel completely hopeless– as if there is nothing we could do to change the story. Our efforts seem to be just a drop in a very large bucket. Join in our conversations this season as we chat with real-life people who are putting their own creative drops in the global poverty bucket.
