Refugee Families Update

Refugee Families – Both of the Syrian refugee families now have bikes, and this has been a wonderful gift in terms of mobility, especially for the Al Hallaq family.  However, anyone who has been to the Al Hallaq apartment knows that there are a lot of stairs, and that it’s a challenge to get the bikes up and down them.  So we are wondering if anyone has a garage or shed in the area around the “What’s the Scoop” Ice Cream Shop / Candy Store that they would be able to let the Al Hallaq family use some space in for their bikes.  If so, please contact Beth Kerr at Trinity United Church (trinitybeth@mymts.net).  Also, both families are looking forward to gardening, and would like some garden tools.  If you have some tools that you can donate, please let Sheri Blaylock know (sblaylock@shaw.ca).

COMFORT DOLLS and INFANT CAPS  UPDATE

Currently we have 31 Caps and 92 Dolls ready for shipment.

It is thrilling to think that a dedicated group of members has been knitting and crocheting for this project since 2009.  Since the dolls and caps are placed in our Donation Boxes anonymously, it is hard to say how many people are participating in this endeavour.  To those crafters who are continuing to provide these much appreciated items:  Thank You so very much!

Mission Moment

Building relationships in Malawi

Presbyterians Sharing supports Joel Sherbino, a part-time mission liaison between the PCC and the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian in Malawi as he continues his ministry at Paris Presbyterian Church in Ontario. In accepting this position, Joel expressed his deep sense of call in these words: “I will always have one foot in each world, Malawi and Canada”. Joel is in regular contact with the Blantyre Synod prison ministry’s volunteers and staff, and encourages Canadian Presbyterians to learn about Malawi, pray for the people there and support special projects. Joel’s position as liaison will help deepen the PCC’s partnership with the CCAP, while offering opportunities for Canadian Presbyterians to engage in Christ’s mission in Malawi.
