MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... provide hope and grace through Winnipeg Inner City Missions. Director Margaret Mullin writes, " Your gifts are invested in the lives of the people we meet every day. Your prayers positively affect their lives and strengthen us for the task at hand. Through your generosity, you are giving people hope for the future; you have helped many families in crisis; and you have been there for many children, youth and adults in desperate human need." Let us pray for WICM's dedicated staff and for the people they faithfully and lovingly serve.
