MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support Stephanie Macdonald as she works as a project management intern at Blantyre Synod Health and Development Commission in Malawi. Understudying Glenn Inglis (the Executive Director) and working with administrative, managerial and technical staff at the Synod, Stephanie hopes to get an insight into the inner workings of a faith-based development organization and find ways she can support this important work. Stephanie is also visiting clergy in their parishes to discover the unique role that the Church plays in development activities in Malawi. Please pray for Stephanie as she settles into a new country and a new job.

MORE WINTER WEATHER TIPS

Prevent car doors from freezing shut with cooking spray! Spritz cooking oil on the rubber seals around car doors and rub it in with a paper towel. The cooking spray prevents water from melting into the rubber.

Fog proof your windshield with shaving cream. Spray some shaving cream on the inside of your windshield and wipe off with paper towels. Shaving cream has many of the same ingredients found in commercial defoggers. (think about that the next time you shave!)

De-ice your lock with hand sanitizer! Just put some hand sanitizer gel on the key and the lock and the problem is solved!

Have a good week - keep warm. MB
