All around are people who are struggling: the family worrying about debt, the ex-offender who can't get work, the kids who have nowhere to play after school. We long to share some of the love our Lord has shown to us. And we know he calls us to love our neighbour as ourselves. But how? Where do we start? David Evans has gathered together stories that will inspire us. Stories of churches who love their neighbours, stories from Tearfund partners around the world: Uganda and South Shields, Cambodia and inner city London. These heart-warming accounts show us how we can work alongside the poor, building on their ideas and offering support rather than dependency, and how we can help with resources, opportunities and changed expectations. And alongside the stories are ideas for action and Bible study, so we can refresh our mission.
