Is our faith just about going to church, studying the Bible, and avoiding the most serious sins—or does God expect more? Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it? In this Plenary Session at the 2017 M3 Conference, World Vision U.S. president Rich Stearns tells his story of coming face-to-face with that question nearly 20 years ago in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda. His journey took him from the corner office at one of America’s most prestigious corporations to a life devoted to walking with the poorest of the poor in our world. His story demonstrates how the gospel—the whole gospel—was always meant to be a world-changing social revolution, a revolution that begins with us.

They’re barefoot in Burundi. And in so many other places in which Dr. Todd Price, an infectious disease specialist from Houston, Texas, has worked, basic needs go unattended. They have malaria, tuberculosis, jiggers, ascariasis, hookworm, cholera, typhoid, schistosomiasis, HIV, infestations. And besides that, they are poor, malnourished and anemic. They arrive to hospitals and clinics in such severe duress that it is a wonder how they could have gotten themselves into such dire circumstances. Yet despite these overwhelming impossibilities, despite these seemingly unbroken circles of despair, poverty and hopelessness, we can make a difference. Regardless of our training and respective expertise, we can provide sustainable solutions to basic healthcare problems and pursue health in communities worldwide. In this Plenary Session at the 2017 M3 Conference, Dr. Price provides compelling information and solutions to help in these seemingly desperate situations, but it all starts with our “yes.”
