PCC MISSION MOMENTS : : Celebrating Indigenous Culture

Hummingbird Ministries is one of nine Presbyterian Indigenous ministries in Canada supported by gifts to Presbyterians Sharing. It is committed to bringing peace and healing to Indigenous families living in BC’s lower mainland. The ministry helps to restore hope by offering regular healing circles; working with the community in art and celebration; and providing educational and healing workshops, Bible studies, children’s art and music programs. Hummingbird Ministries also runs a children’s dance program in which Indigenous children are taught traditional Metis dances. Known as the Hummingbird Dancers, the children recently performed at a festival in East Vancouver in honor of National Indigenous Peoples Day, which recognized and celebrated the rich cultures of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in Canada.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS : World Food Day (Oct. 16)                              Hunger finds families when they are facing challenges like poverty, conflict, climate change and illness. Globally, hunger burdens over 800 million people—Rosa Martinez from Nicaragua was one of them. The effects of climate change made it difficult for Rosa to predict when to plant her crops. When she did, irregular rainfall ruined what little food she’d grown. Through a sustainable agriculture project supported by Canadian Foodgrains Bank, PWS&D helped Rosa learn to store water, grow new plant varieties and start seedlings in cups for better plant growth. Because of what she’s learned, Rosa is growing more food for her family. A sustainable source of food opens the door to abundant life.                                  PWS&D is working for zero hunger

PCC MISSION MOMENTS :                                                                                       International Day of the Girl Child (Oct. 11)                                                   Poonam was only 13 years old when she learned that her parents had arranged for her to be married in a few months. In India, early marriage is a very common practice, deeply rooted in tradition. Unfortunately, it also takes away a girl’s right to a childhood, disrupts her schooling and puts her at risk of early pregnancy. Meera Devi works with PWS&D partners in Poonam’s village to empower women and girls and prevent early marriages by running sessions that address issues of gender and sexual and reproductive rights. Because of Meera’s work, Poonam’s family understands the negative impacts of early marriage. The wedding has been postponed, and a joyful Poonam is completing her schooling.                                                  PWSD helps girls decide their own future
