Who would be the guru for the international development industry?
It is Dr. Bryant Myers.
He was a VP at World Vision for several years. Now he is professor of international development at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is a practitioner as well as an academia. His book, "Walking with the Poor" is the bible for anyone who is pursuing a degree or a career in international development.
He emphasizes holistic ministry.
"The NATURE of poverty is fundamentally RELATIONAL and the CAUSE of poverty is fundamentally SPIRITUAL."
It is a profound statement.
Why am I talking about this?
Today I met him in person. It was such a wonderful opportunity to listen to him. His advice was golden. Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to meet Dr. Myers! - Jeffrey
