FROM THE REFUGEE COMMITTEE: Many thanks to those who have committed to donate furnishings for Hossein and Navid’s next apartment! Please bring your items to the church before the end of January. If you cannot bring them on a Sunday, phone Elisabeth in the Church Office (416 699-5871) to find a convenient time to drop them off. We are still in need of a few items. Thanks.

MISSION CAPSULES: Life in Malawi is hard enough for the majority of people without the compounded struggle of a physical or mental disability. Through the Tidzalerana Club in Blantyre, people with disabilities are discovering that disability is not inability. Tidzalerana means "we care for one another," and rightly so. Led by dedicated volunteers, the club provides a place where those with physical and developmental disabilities feel love and accepted. Participants of all ages receive a nutritious meal while learning practical skills such as sewing, mat weaving and business managment. Club members also meet weekly to listen to one another's concerns, learn new skills and sing songs together. Programs like these are made possible thanks to the compassionate support of Presbyterians. PWS&D responds to people with disabilities.

NOTE: Our Annual Congregational Meeting will be held in February. Elisabeth needs all our reports for the Annual Report.
