 PCC MISSION MOMENTS : A warm welcome for Jumai

Whenever Jumai went out into his Nepali village, he would be cruelly mocked because of his ulcers, sore patches and swollen legs.  Jumai was living with leprosy and couldn’t afford to pay for ongoing treatment. Visiting the PWS&D-supported Shining Hospital changed everything. When Jumai was admitted, he was struck by something more than the timely service and quality medical care—the love and acceptance he felt was a welcome relief after years of shame and judgement. “I feel at home in this hospital,” says Jumai. “I receive such good care.” Filled with thanks for PWS&D, Jumai looks forward to a better future.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS : Every gift matters

Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing reflect the joint efforts and witness of Presbyterians across Canada who live out the gospel message in all aspects of life.  Together, we put our faith into action by equipping congregations, ministries and presbyteries; engaging in evangelism, outreach and discipleship; embracing local, national and international mission work; living out God’s call to justice; empowering youth; engaging in healing and reconciliation; creating new faith communities and supporting congregations – and so much more! Dr. Nick Bauman, who spent the past 2 years serving as PCC mission staff in Nepal, shares, “Our lives are not our own, but are gifts, and we are entrusted by God to be stewards of these gifts.”  Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing are making a difference, thanks to the generosity of Presbyterians across Canada.  Every gift matters!

PCC MISSION MOMENTS : Where there’s a wheel, there’s a way

In a region of Saint-Marc in Haiti, three vehicles holding four nurses, a community health worker, medication and 200 kg of Nourimanba—a high calorie food that saves lives—arrive at a primary school, transforming it into a health post for the treatment of severe malnutrition. Supporting local partners through Canadian Foodgrains Bank, PWS&D is bringing care to children whose families can’t afford medical expenses or the cost of travel to medical facilities. In a region where malnutrition is a leading cause of child mortality, this support is vital. “Since they started mobile clinics, the number of hospitalizations for children with severe malnutrition has decreased dramatically,” says Dr. Martine André, head of pediatrics at Saint-Nicholas Hospital in Saint-Marc.

PWS&D brings care to remote communities

PCC MISSION MOMENTS : Seeking justice for all

Through gifts to Presbyterians Sharing, The Presbyterian Church in Canada is working to sow seeds of hope and respond to the justice imperatives of the gospel. God calls us to name injustices, walk with vulnerable people and work with others for the common good.  Over the years, Justice Ministries has prepared responses to overtures or motions adopted by General Assembly. These range from statements on genetics, health care, sanctuary for refugees, violence in computer games, the growing gap between rich and poor in Canada and, more recently, inclusion for Presbyterians who are members of the LGBTQI community, the opioids crisis and forced labour. Through Justice Ministries, our church walks with Indigenous peoples on the path towards healing and reconciliation, partners with ecumenical agencies, produces resources and leads workshops on vital justice issues. As followers of Jesus, we are a people of hope.

 PCC MISSION MOMENTS : Equipping and nurturing future church leaders.   Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing equip and nurture future church leaders who in turn will equip and nurture others to witness faithfully in the world. In 2017, 18 students graduated from our three theological colleges – Knox College in Toronto, The Presbyterian College in Montreal and Vancouver School of Theology and St. Andrew’s Hall in Vancouver. These colleges provide a strong academic and practical foundation to prepare students to serve our congregations. The PCC supports ministry candidates and their presbyteries as they work to discern the candidate’s call. In 2017, 16 candidates attended the PCC’s Guidance Conference, which helps participants recognize their abilities, strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan of growth as they move forward. Together, we also encourage and support new clergy who have just begun their ministries.

Presbyterians Sharing supports visionary church leaders.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS : Human Rights Day (Dec. 10)                        In many parts of the world, girls face barriers to education and other opportunities to earn a living. In Afghanistan, Zarmina felt frustrated by her community’s belief that a girl’s place is in the home and not in the classroom. In an effort to make life better for her daughters, Zarmina participated in gender equality training with PWS&D partners. Zarmina shared what she learned about a child’s right to an education with other mothers, fathers and village leaders. As a result of her advocacy, the community now enthusiastically supports girls’ education. “We hope that one day there will be no child out of school, not only in our community, but in the entire country.”  PWS&D is making a difference for girls around the world

LPC 40th THANK YOU to everyone who joined us to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. A special THANK YOU to everyone who worked very hard towards making it a memorable event.  It was a wonderful day and everyone who attended felt truly blessed!

PCC MISSION MOMENTS : World Soil Day (Dec. 5)                                 Soil gives life and supports livelihoods around the world. In Badin, Pakistan, Rabia’s life depends on access to rich, fertile soil—she needs it to grow the crops she sells each week at the market. But an especially dry summer has led to severe water shortages in her village. Rabia’s soil was too arid to yield the produce she needs. With support from PWS&D and Canadian Foodgrains Bank, Rabia has learned to adopt agricultural practices that use less water. She also received seeds to grow crops that can survive extended dry periods. “This is highly beneficial for farmers like me, who reside in water-scarce areas,” shares Rabia.                                                                                      PWS&D helps farmers adapt to climate change
