When the Adobe Digital Editions installer comes up, click on 'Download Item.'

Save the file to your Desktop for quick access later.
Right-click on the URLLINK file, then select 'Open With' and choose Adobe Digital Editions.
If Adobe Digital Editions is not in the list, click 'Choose Default Program' and then select Adobe Digital Editions from the list.
Your eBook will open and display in ADE.

A situation is assessed for whether relief, rehabilitation, or development is the best response to a situation. Efforts are characterized by an "asset based" approach rather than a "needs based" approach. Short term mission efforts are addressed and economic development strategies appropriate for North American and international contexts are presented, including microenterprise development.

The nugget for me is - we all experience poverty. I concur with the book, poverty is caused by a broken relationship: with God, with self, with others and/or the enviroment in which we live.
It tells us the stages in which our efforts fall and makes suggestions to move the situation to the next level.
I have a hardcopy and now an e-book. I recommend this book for individual, community and global care ministries and 'book clubs' readers.
