MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... help create new ministries like Cloverdale Korean Church in Surrey, B.C. This church began with the dream of encouraging first and second generation Koreans to use their talents to build the Korean Christian community, and to help and encourage the Korean Christian community to be an important and active part of the local community. Cloverdale's ESL program has been very successful, even resulting in new families joining the church! Cloverdale also reaches out to the community through a homeless ministry in the downtown area.

Dear God. I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church. Is that ok? Neil

Dear God. I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions. Ruth

Dear God. In Bible times, did they really talk that fancy? Jennifer

Dear God. I am Amearican, what are you? Robert

Dear God. I think about you sometimes even when I'm not praying. Elliot

Dear God. I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only four people in our family and I can never do it! Nan
