CLEAR PATH TO END THE WORST

POVERTY IN THE WORLD

BY THE YEAR 2035.

IT'S NAMED FOR ISAIAH 58.

IT'S A CHAPTER OF SCRIPTURE

THAT REALLY EMBODIES

THIS KEY THEME OF

GOD'S HEART FOR THE POOR.

DR. SCOTT TODD SAYS EXTREME

POVERTY CAN BE ENDED IN THIS

GENERATION.

IN NEW 1981, 52 PERCENT OF

EXTREME POPULATION.

AS OF 2005, 26 PERCENT.

GLOBAL POVERTY CHOBED IN

HALF.

WHITE HOUSE WITH TODD.

WE HAVE THE CALL FROM GOD.

WE HAVE TO DO THIS.

AND LIVE58.ORG IS OFFERING LIVE

SCREENING KITS.

TODD GAVE UP A LUCRATIVE MEDICAL

CAREER.

CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS THAT

ARE WORLD CLASS HAVE EXPERIENCED

TRUSTWORTHY, GET IT DONE.

TODD SAYS ABORTION ON THEIR

OWN CAN'T END POVERTY.

GOD CAN.

GOD HAS GIVEN HIS PEOPLE, HIS

CHURCH, NOT JUST THE RESOURCES

AND PEOPLE AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

HE HAS GIVEN THIS ORDAINED

PROMISE THE CHURCH WILL OVERCOME

THE VERY GATES OF HELL.

REVIVAL WILL COME OUT OF

OBEYING, ISAIAH 58.

WE SING IN OUR CHURCHES LOST

AND REVIVAL UNLESS WE HAVE

CONCERN FOR THE POOR.

THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

WE FEEL PASSIONATELY ABOUT THIS.

WHEN PEOPLE GET ON BOARD, WE ARE

GOING TO SEE GOD MOVE POWERFULLY

IN OUR OWN LIVES.
