Through the award winning documentary 58: The Film, Live58 fosters collaborative partnerships with local and global communities to awaken the church to “spend themselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed” with the promise that “They will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” We learn that when we put ourselves in unfamiliar places with the poor, hungry and exploited, it changes us. We go to heal them, but in exchange God changes us forever.

“God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both their lives. God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war. God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them.” ― Bono
