Together, Farming for the Future

One way our church is empowering vulnerable families to overcome hunger and improve nutrition is by supporting the Malawi Farmer-to-Farmer Agroecology project through Presbyterian World Service & Development. The project—with funding from the Government of Canada and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank—has helped 6,000 farm families in Malawi transform their withered plots of land and improve their livelihoods and lives for the long-term. Learning from one another, farmers practice and apply sustainable methods that help protect crops from a changing environment. Annie Nguluve was amazed by the results of the program. Since learning about the advantages of intercropping, her small plot of land has sprung to life. “I’ve seen that I get more yields by adding other crops. It has increased my food production.”

PWS&D supports food security for smallholder farmers

Equipping church leaders – The Presbyterian Church in Canada equips and nurtures future church leaders who will in turn equip and nurture others to witness faithfully in the world. Our theological colleges provide a strong academic and practical foundation to prepare students for ministry. Ministry and Church Vocations supports ministry candidates and their presbyteries as they discern the candidate’s call. Together we encourage and support new clergy who have just begun their ministries. Let us pray for our theological students as they work to become faithful leaders in our churches and for all who inspire them.

January 15: Overcoming Obstacles in Ghana

Adisah used to feel neglected by her family in Ghana. Because she was born with a hearing and speech impairment, Adisah was not given the opportunity to attend school. Years later, she received the care she needed at the Garu Community Based Rehabilitation Centre. The centre—which assists people living with disabilities to overcome challenges and access vocational support—offered Adisah training in agricultural production. Adisah worked very hard and soon became a successful farmer. Together with her husband Salam, they are producing enough food for their three children. Salam recently remarked, “My wife is a blessing to me. I thank God for the support from the centre and PWS&D to make us what we are today”.

PWS&D provides support to people living with disabilities

PCC MISSION MOMENTS

Sharing God’s love – Antioch Community Church is a new congregation in Oakville, Ontario. Striving to build a strong foundation in the community, they participate in many programs that reach out to people in need– families who fall below the poverty line, stressed single parents and retirees that struggle to make ends meet. Members go door to door to collect food for a local food bank and work with Kerr Street Ministries to provide hope to people living in need. A community breakfast for ninety people helped Anitoch build relationships while sharing a home-cooked meal. One member was inspired to collect donations for a second community breakfast. Antioch is a church where people can come together to serve and show God’s compassion, while reaching out in love to the community.
