PCC MISSION MOMENTS – Giving with generous hearts
Throughout his ministry, Jesus preached on the importance of caring for people living on the margins of society. Responding to a need in their local community, the grant-receiving congregation of St. Matthew’s Presbyterian Church in Grand Falls-Windsor, N.L. has constructed a “community clothesline” in their sanctuary. At each of their monthly services, the congregation hangs new adult socks, hats, mitts, scarves and underclothes on the clothesline, which are later distributed by the Salvation Army’s Community and Family Services division. At each service, the clothesline cannot hold all of the items due to the generosity of its church members, and extra bins must be set up to collect all of the donations.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS – A ministry of presence
When 35cm of rain fell over 5 days in Malawi in March, the presence of PCC mission staff was invaluable. Vivian and Blair Bertrand gave us first-hand accounts of the devastation experienced by over 900,000 Malawians. They recounted the harsh realities, faced especially by subsistence farmers who lost their entire crops. They grieved together with their friends and colleagues when roofs collapsed, walls caved in, latrines were washed away, and family members died. Amid the darkness, Vivian, working with Churches Action in Relief and Development (CARD), has been busy writing proposals for CARD’s relief efforts. Proposals include providing emergency items such as food, plastic sheets, cooking pots, water buckets and chlorine to treat water and agricultural support to help people reclaim their livelihoods after the loss of crops and livestock. Presbyterians Sharing supports the Bertrands whose presence opens a window into this widespread tragedy.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Shining hope
PWS&D helps to ensure access to medical care and training in disease recognition and prevention so that families and communities can grow healthier. Through timely diagnosis, medical care and health education, people affected with leprosy and other illnesses in an impoverished region of Nepal are improving their health with support from PWS&D partners at the Shining Hospital. Dal is one person receiving support. A reaction to the medication Dal was prescribed for his leprosy left him very sick. Every hospital he visited couldn’t provide treatment, until he visited the Shining Hospital. There, Dal received the support he needed to restore his health and the life he enjoyed. This story of hope is shared by 158 patients who received treatment for leprosy over the past year.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Canadians care!
As we mark Canada Day, let us also celebrate Canada’s contributions around the world. International aid plays an important role in addressing poverty, hunger and inequality in vulnerable countries. Support from the Government of Canada for PWS&D’s maternal, newborn and child health program in Afghanistan and Malawi maximizes Presbyterian contributions to projects delivering life-saving healthcare to mothers and babies. Let’s continue sharing Canadian compassion and generosity throughout the world. Through the I Care campaign, Canadians can sign a postcard addressed to the prime minister, letting him know that they care about and support Canada’s role in ending global hunger and poverty.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS Exploring the power of prayer
With support from Presbyterians Sharing, Two Rivers Church in Guelph, Ont., is exploring new ways of being the church. A recipient of the PCC’s Supporting Ministry Grant, the ministry is made up of “Living Rooms,” where people gather together in homes for meals and conversations that draw them deeper into friendship in Christ. They recently began The Prayer Project, which encourages spiritual depth, wisdom and maturity among its members through prayer. The Prayer Project is a multi-faceted approach to forming missional apprentices of Jesus, through a variety of initiatives that include a weekly contemplative prayer walk, a Healing Prayer Team, as well as special events dedicated to communal prayer.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS A house of hope in Romania
Brothers Kevin and Ionut live in rural Romania. When their mom died, their father, unemployed and devastated by his wife’s death, felt that there was no other option but to put his boys into a state-run orphanage. A local minister approached Csilla Bertalan, the Director of Samuel House, asking her to help the boys. Samuel House is a Christian social ministry of the Reformed Church in Romania that receives support from Presbyterians Sharing. 36 children from struggling families, some at risk of being put into orphanages, are cared for in a loving and stable environment. Education is key and the tutors of the after-school program ensure the children will succeed. Csilla shares, “We are grateful to God who sends us generous supporters such as the PCC, who are thinking of and caring for the kids that live and study with us.”
