    All the ends of the earthwill remember and turn to the LORD,and all the families of the nationswill bow down before him (psalms 22:27)   Empower the Poor to Find the Answer   Regardless of how good our intenons are, without the essenal foun-daon of biblical character, all efforts to overcome poverty will fail - no maerhow much money is sent. When it comes to poverty - a lack of money is notthe cause of the problem, and tons of cash is not the soluon. There isnothing wrong with helping people through a desperate situaon, and weshould do all we can when lives are in imminent danger, but we must focusour efforts on what helps people get out of poverty, not keep them connuallydependent on outsiders for their survival. The strategies employed to help thepoor must encourage and support the individual and community efforts of thepoor to change their own situaon. No amount of outside aid and outsidesoluons can replace local iniave. No amount of hard work by outsiders canreplace the ongoing hard work of the local people in creang jobs and starngtheir own businesses. The local people have to be empowered to take respon-sibility for their own lives and be given the spiritual tools, business skills andfreedom that can enable them to li themselves out of poverty. Is there a rolefor outside help? Yes but it has to be centered around changing lives from theinside out, not simply pung expensive band-aids on the situaon that willeventually wear off. The healing and transformaon must come from inside.We can help in this process, but we cannot and should not do it for them.  Poverty ulmately derives from the Fall of man and the four brokenrelaonships that have resulted. These are with God, with others, with our-selves and with creaon as a whole. These broken relaonships have affectedall of us, but for the poor they have become a crushing burden that Satan hasused to convince the poor to believe a lie and keep them in poverty. PENIEL NEWS Sep - Oct 2011 Volume 1, Issue 5 Prayer points ã Pray for the Christmasoutreach in Cambodia. ã Pray pray for 3 days gospelcrusade during Mar 2012 inMyanmar. ã Please pray for the communi-ty center in gelang patah inJohor bahru. ã Pray for the revival in thenation of Indonesia which has237 Million population ã Pray that God’s hand to openthe doors in the nation of Laoswhich has 7 Million popula-tion Promise verse for 2011  “Not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit”, says the LordAlmighty ( zech 4:6)    The poor have internalized the lies, “Give up! You don’t maer. Nobody cares about you. Look aroundyou: things are terrible. Always have been, always will be.” These are the lies of fatalism, vicmhood andpowerlessness. They have lost the hope that they or anyone else can change their situaon. They havecome to believe that no amount of hard work can change their circumstances. These lies must bedefeated in order for the poor to get out of poverty, and they can only be defeated by presenng themwith the truth of God’s love and power through Jesus Christ - just what the church is best able to provide.As we establish Church Planng Movements within every people, we will encounter the poor and the liesthat have kept them in bondage. As they come to Christ and begin to believe the Truth, they will have thepower to defeat these lies and to lay the spiritual foundaon from which they can raise themselves out of poverty.With a combinaon of effecve discipleship and praccal, locally based economic soluons thepoor can come to believe that they can do all things through Christ, including raising themselves andothers out of poverty. They can then create their own wealth and not be dependent on outsiders for theirsurvival. Cambodia :   By Gods grace, Ourgospel centre inSiemreap is taken careof Ms Pheak Tra andher family.
