MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... help congregations going through times of significant transition. In Nova Scotia, the two-point charge of St. Matthew's church, Elmsdale and Hardwood Lands Church have been helped through a difficult time with our gifts. The Rev. Gwen Robers writes, "We are grateful for the continued support of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, which continues to give needed and extremely valuable oversight, leadership and assistance through Presbyterians Sharing." Let us pray for St. Matthew's and Hardwood Lands churches as they move forward in their ministries.
