How It Works

Then the LORD said to him, "what is that in your hand?"
Exodus 4:2 NIV

In Exodus 4:2, God encouraged Moses to use what he had in his hand. Following this example, the training provided by Samaritan’s Purse through local Churches encourages the poorest, most vulnerable families to recognise what they already have, rather than what they do not have, and to use it.
