Your passport to learning how short-term missions can best serve Christ's kingdom. Short-term mission trips are a great way to impact the kingdom. Yet they can lack effectiveness because of mistakes or naiveté on the part of participants. In this insightful book, David A. Livermore calls us to serve with our eyes open to global and cultural realities so we can become more effective cross-cultural ministers.
Poverty is much more than simply a lack of material resources, and it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve it. When Helping Hurts shows how some alleviation efforts, failing to consider the complexities of poverty, have actually (and unintentionally) done more harm than good. It encourages us to see the dignity in everyone, to empower the materially poor, and to know that we are all uniquely needy—and that God in the gospel is reconciling all things to himself.

Something Needs to Change
While leading a team on a week-long trek of the Himalayas, bestselling author and pastor David Platt was stunned by the human needs he encountered, an experience so dramatic that it "changed the trajectory of my life." In Something Needs to Change, Platt invites readers to come along on both the adventure of the trek, as well as the adventure of seeking answers to tough questions like, "Where is God in the middle of suffering?" "What makes my religion any better than someone else's religion?" and "What do I believe about eternal suffering?" Platt has crafted an irresistible message about what it means to give your life for the gospel--to finally stop talking about faith and truly start living it.
The aim of this prayer guide is simple: to encourage you to pray for some of the world’s most urgent needs in light of the truths of God’s Word. Each day contains a brief reflection from God’s Word alongside a snapshot of urgent needs in a particular country. As you complete these thirty days of prayer, our hope is that you’ll be compelled to make praying for urgent needs among the nations a regular part of your life. We also hope you’ll be open to how the Lord might lead you to leverage your life—your resources, your time, your gifts, your education, your life experiences, etc.—for the sake of spreading the gospel among those who have never heard.
