2nd MISSION TRIP TO SHEPHERD’S HOUSE(5337 180 St, SURREY)

Session has agreed that as our mission and outreach ministry for the coming years, Langley Presbyterian will focus on supporting the ministry and mission of Shepherd’s House. This year we would like to develop a more hands-on relationship between our congregation and this important work. To this end we are planning a trip to Shepherd’s House for April 28. So that transportation is not an issue (as many of us no longer drive after dark) we will arrange to pick you up at your home, drive you to Shepherd’s House and return you home at the end of the evening. If you would like to take advantage of this arrangement please put your name on the sign-up sheet at the back of the sanctuary. If you can help provide rides for others please put your name on the sign-up sheet and write “Driver” beside it.

 THE ELDERS’ DISTIRCTS have been posted in the narthex. Please check the lists to see whose district you are in. If your name does not appear on any of the lists please contact Clara, our administrator.

 CAMP DOUGLAS MINI RETREAT WORK PARTY on May 26–28th Save the date! And expect a great time. Please register by May 14, 2017 (the sooner the better). Please pick up your registration form from the back table and send the form to Robyn Silva at robyn@hiscpc.org. For more information, phone Robyn at 604-209-1706.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS World Malaria Day (April 25)

Malaria is one of Africa’s most severe health challenges and one of its most prevalent childhood diseases. Presbyterian World Service & Development is working to reduce the incidence of malaria by teaching communities how to prevent the spread. Community leaders and volunteers run prevention campaigns and teach people how to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and properly use and care for bed nets that provide protection while sleeping. When someone does contract malaria, volunteers now know how to respond quickly with medical care to ensure fewer people die as a result of the disease. With awareness, tools and training, communities are seeing fewer cases of the disease and embracing their futures with optimism and strong, healthy bodies.

PWS&D supports communities fighting malaria materials, reducing soil erosion and protecting water resources—while also increasing his yields. This method of farming is helping Elias improve his family’s life and overcome hunger for the long-term. PWS&D helps families farm sustainably
