Find out how 50 Million Americans struggle every day with feeding their family, getting to work, and providing medical care for their children, among many other daily life challenges, Wednesday, November 14 at Ocean Lakes Family Campground Recreation Center in Surfside Beach from 8:30AM to 11:30AM. Rev. Beth Templeton, Founder of Our Eyes Were Opened, will facilitate a Poverty Simulation aimed at helping concerned citizens better understand the struggles of families living at or below the poverty threshold, and ultimately provide better assistance.
Since its inception five years ago, Our Eyes Were Opened has educated over 14,000 people through workshops, simulations, the books Loving Our Neighbor and Understanding Poverty in the Classroom, and the DVD series Servant or Sucker. For more information, please visit www.oureyeswereopened.org.
Following the simulation, registrants are invited to attend a luncheon prepared by Street Reach Ministries Catering Services. Rev. Bill Stanfield of the Metanoia Community Development Corporation of North Charleston, SC will speak about the Biblical perspective on caring for those in need.
