 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Achieving Independence Through Agriculture Training

Esther Beza has many responsibilities. The Malawian farmer takes care of her four children and her elderly parents, all while farming two hectares of land. But with changing rain patterns, low soil fertility and poor access to seeds, Esther’s crops didn’t yield enough food to feed her family. Esther had been skipping meals, but things changed after she participated in an agricultural training project with Presbyterian World Service & Development and Canadian Foodgrains Bank. “I no longer struggle to find seeds, and I have learned to use pig manure for fertilizer,” shares Esther, motivated by the fruitful results of the farming techniques she’s learned. Esther no longer worries about anyone going hungry.

With support from Presbyterians Sharing, the ministry offers a clothing and food program, a mid-week worship service, an arts program, and crisis and spiritual counseling. Rooted in First Nations’ traditions and gospel teachings, SNCM offers prayer, friendship, and radical hospitality to those who are struggling. Presbyterians Sharing reaches out to people in need

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS World Refugee Day (June 20)

Refugees are part of our human family and are entitled to their rights to peace and protection. In Bangladesh, almost 900,000 Rohingya have settled in squalid shelter conditions after escaping terrifying human rights abuses and violence in Myanmar. Refugees are still arriving, and the nearing monsoon season puts those living in camps at risk of floods and landslides. Join Presbyterian World Service & Development as we respond to the needs of the Rohingya with Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the ACT Alliance by helping deliver life-saving food packages as well as shelter, hygiene kits, water and sanitation services, and psychosocial assistance. As we respond to pain and despair in Bangladesh, let us pray for refugees on their journey to find safety and peace in other parts of the world.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS A history of Canadian mission in Taiwan

History matters! Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing support Louise Gamble as she works with our partner church, the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, to transcribe and translate reports and correspondence of the Canadian North Formosa Mission. These documents are records of the development of the Christian Church in North Formosa, from the point of view of its missionaries. It includes over 7,000 documents from 1868 to 1923. Louise works in partnership with her talented and dedicated Taiwanese colleague, Mr. James Chen. They are working on the third and final series (1915–1923), which documents events during WWI as well as issues such as Canadian church union and the growing theological tensions in North America. When finished, this series will likely be over 1500 pages!
