 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Care that endures in Nepal

When 11-year-old Madan fell from a tree, he suffered injuries that left him bedridden and covered in painful sores.  When his health didn’t improve, his family took him to a Presbyterian World Service & Development-supported clinic in a remote region of Nepal.  There he received treatment, physiotherapy and a wheelchair – but the assistance didn’t end there.  When Madan wanted to attend school, local partners advocated for the addition of an accessibility ramp at a nearby school to accommodate his wheelchair.  Madan’s time at school, alongside supportive friends, was empowering.  Today, he is taking college courses and aspiring to complete a master’s degree.  Madan is grateful for the support that not only treated his illness, but also helped him build a future of hope and opportunity.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Singing songs of joy in Malawi

Presbyterian World Service & Development’s Building Sustainable Livelihoods program in Malawi supports orphans and vulnerable children, women, and people living with HIV and AIDS to overcome poverty and build hopeful futures. One way this is accomplished is through self-help groups. Last year, 22 groups were established, enabling vulnerable women to save and borrow loans to better care for their families. With her first loan, one woman transformed her life. With her savings, she opened a small grocery stall. Today, she is earning enough to support herself, buy food and hygiene supplies for her family and pay her son’s college tuition. “I am really grateful to this project. It is there to empower us,” she says. “We are now singing songs of joy.”

PCC MISSION MOMENTS The Sacrament of the Ordinary

Your gifts to Presbyterians Sharing are providing grants to nine new congregational developments in Canada. One of these, Two Rivers Church, began as a small group of friends who felt the call to come together as a church in downtown Guelph, Ontario. A biweekly Living Room gathering brings people together for a meal and conversation. The “Sacrament of the Ordinary” encourages participants to share something from the past week which caused them to reflect on the presence of grace in the mundane or routine. Rev. Glen Soderholm shares, “I think what we want to cultivate is a deeper attunement to the reality of God with us in every detail of our lives. By hearing each other’s reflections, we become opened to this possibility in all of our daily lives.” Presbyterians Sharing supports new congregations in Canada

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Feeding uprooted families in South Sudan

Sitting outside her home on a warm, sunny day in South Sudan, the sudden crack of distant gunfire wasn’t immediately concerning to Besta. But when the gunshots became louder and more frequent, she grew fearful and her husband decided they must gather their children and flee. Amid a frantic crowd, they ran to save their lives. Now settled in a makeshift shelter, the family was safe, but worried about where their next meal would come from. Besta longs to return to her farm but she acknowledges that the food rations her family received from Presbyterian World Service & Development through a Canadian Foodgrains Bank-supported project have been a source of hope. Despite the hardships she has experienced, Besta is grateful to have something to feed her children. PWS&D responds to those uprooted by conflict
