    As someone who works to change Pity/Poverty model to Potential and Possibility, I deeply resonated with these 27 points. Let us Make NO Assumptions and let us see the potential that exists everywhere. if we are called to serve, let us first LISTEN to the locals and LEARN from them how to best partner With them to meet needs together. Thank you so much for this well thought out article! HUG

    In my experience, the poorest people in the world (I.e. low SES with the least amount of material possessions) are always the most generous and welcoming. We could all learn a lot from them.
