Poverty Encounter Field Trip

What: Come join us for an amazing experience at The Poverty Encounter! Poverty Encounter is an interactive exhibit that takes you into four immersive environments in the developing world. Each environment highlights the story of a real child living in these circumstances. Onsite tours include a service activity, allowing you to respond biblically by providing both help and hope to those in need.

“An immersive, interactive experience, Poverty Encounter provides a unique understanding of the impact of living in poverty, and opportunities to make a difference.”

Have you ever heard your children say, “I’m starving,” “there’s nothing to eat,” or “I don’t like this meal!”? Do you wish your children had a greater appreciation for what they have? As a homeschool mother of four, it pained me to hear my boys’ lack of gratitude for all the Lord had given them. One of the reasons we homeschooled was to teach our kids about who God is and that they can play a part in His plans. My husband and I wondered how we could open our children’s eyes to the abundance they had before them.
