” Poverty is more than not possessing TV’s or a new car, or designer clothes. It is suffering, hunger, deprivation, humiliation, sorrow, often terror, and sometimes death!  Poverty is weariness that comes from constant need. Poverty is the terrible ache of hopelessness. Poverty is terror that comes from seeing a loved one die for lack of food or medicine. Poverty is the force, the energy that drives Haitians to risk their lives in rickety boats on the high seas. ” 

 –Pastor Jim Glynn, Heart of God Ministries, Haiti

    We are considered to be WAY below poverty level in the US and we have it really good – we can pay bills, eat, have a home and pretty much everything we need….we have no idea what poverty really is here.
