Five Talents Sunday
Every three years, the church lectionary circles back to Christ's Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25.
This is a great opportunity for friends of Five Talents to share with their church community how Christ's words are inspiring poor women and men in Africa, Asia and Latin America to become faithful stewards of the unique gifts that God has given them.

Sadly, almost half of the world now struggles for survival on less than $2 a day. And, many of us despair at the enormity of this challenge. The poor have gifts and talents, and Christian microsavings is proving to be a very effective way to lift one village at a time out of poverty.
With business training and access to community savings and loans, we’re helping villagers with small businesses – like purchasing chickens to sell eggs. Our donations help, help and help again as these small investments are repaid and loaned out again to others.
