PCC MISSION MOMENTS Finding her voice Shumaila, a timid 16-year-old from Afghanistan, dreamed of having the confidence to work in politics and guide the peaceful development of her country. One day, her school’s principal announced that a summer camp offering training on human rights, leadership and public speaking would be starting shortly. The camp, supported by Presbyterian World Service & Development, lasted four days but changed Shumaila’s life forever. “I became confident and developed knowledge on politics and the rights of women and children,” she shares proudly. In a mock election, Shumaila was voted president—but she won more than just a title. “It was during the election campaign that I got the confidence required to deliver speeches in public.”With this support, Shumaila participates in school activities and voices her opinions at community events. PWS&D empowers women and girls Syria, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Liberia, Pakistan, Burma and Venezuela arriving safely in Canada. We celebrate the compassionate efforts of Presbyterians across Canada who are responding to God’s call to serve and defend the vulnerable and the persecuted. PWS&D responds to refugees

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Health and Hope in Afghanistan

Razia always wanted to be a mother. But the young woman had struggled for years to conceive and feared something was wrong. In the remote village in Afghanistan where she lives, the closest health centre was a distance away; therefore medical check-ups and tests seemed a nuisance and the cost to travel an unnecessary expense. With the establishment of a Presbyterian World Service & Development-supported health centre in a nearby village, Razia was able to meet with medical professionals who addressed her health concerns and helped her receive proper treatment so she could get pregnant. Today, with improved access to necessary health services, Razia’s well-being has improved and her hope is restored. PWS&D helps new mothers have healthy futures

PCC MISSION MOMENTS A Presbyterian gathering

This Sunday, Presbyterians from across Canada are meeting in Kingston, ON for our annual General Assembly. The chosen theme is Jesus Christ – the same yesterday, today, forever, based on Hebrews 13:8. Commissioners from across Canada will worship together and discuss, debate and vote on matters that affect our denomination. A first-time commissioner from last year shares, “I gained extensive new knowledge of the extent of our denomination’s work and mission. It was energizing to meet Presbyterians from across the country and to feel part of something beyond my congregation.” Please pray for those gathering, that they might find renewal and unity in Christ. Presbyterians Sharing brings Presbyterians together at General Assembly.

 

COMMUNITY EVENTS

 

BETHESDA CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION supports people with disabilities and their families.  Our Mission is walking alongside families, and serving people of all abilities, experiencing the joys and challenges of life together.  Our Vision is to see people of all abilities belonging to interdependent communities where they are valued and empowered to share their essential God-given skills and abilities.  Bethesda’s ministry is a Christian faith-based service. A compatible placement enriches the lives of the individual and the lives of the home share family. A suitable contract will be established. Bethesda will provide ongoing support to the person/couple/family providing care.  For more information or to request an application package, please contact Darlene at 604-850-6604 ext. 319 or life@BethesdaBC.com or visit the Bethesda website at www.bethesdabc.com
