MISSION CAPSULES: Through the Youth in Mission program, gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... brought 14 young people from the PCC's partner churches in Malawi, Taiwan, Ukraine and Nicaragua to Canada for three weeks. The group visited churches and sites in Nova Scotia, PEI and Ontario and attended the Canada Youth conference. They talked to people in congregations about the joys and challenges they are facing in their own countries, and heard stories about church life in Canada. They celebrated, sang, danced and worshipped with over 500 young people from across Canada at Canada Youth. Friendships were made, faith and partnerships were strengthened and lives were changed, thanks to your gifts.
