MISSION CAPSULES: Atiq Ullah used to plant his crops without considering how much seed to use or when they should be cultivated. This was not the result of carelessness, but a lack of knowlede about proper agriculture techniques. In December 2012, Atiq Ullah and 1200 farmers in Afghanistan received training through a PWS&D supported project. "After attending this training, I realized that we have been wasting much of our resources," said Atiq. He has since reported a 90% increase in his crop yield. "As I have observed the change in my crops, I want to teach the same skills to other farmers in my village."

SUNDAY, MARCH 25th, 2014 - Beaches Book Study - After an unexpectedly long break, the group is getting back together. We bring our lunch, grab a coffee and gather in the prayer room after the fellowship time at noon on Sundays. All are welcome. It is not necessary to have attended before. It is not necessary to attend each Sunday. It is necessary to bring your questions, your concerns, your joys, your doubts, your faith, your open heart and your open mind.
