MISSION CAPSULES: Ongoing civil war in Syria has resulted in one of the largest refugee movements in modern times. PWS&D is responding with Canadian Foodgrains Bank to ensure people like Zakaria and his wife are able to feed their family. Unable to find work after fleeing to Lebanon, their children often went to bed hungry - having had only one meal to eat all day. The food vouchers he receives through the project means Zakaria is able to purchase enough food to feed and support his family, instilling hope for the future and helping him regain self-esteem and confidence. In addition to providing humanitarian assistance, The Presbyterian Church in Canada is supporting congregations to sponsor Syrian refugees to resettle in Canada.

OF INTEREST: St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Ajax are gathering milk bags and are part of a larger group of volunteers who turn the bags into thick mattresses that are shipped to countries who suffer from flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes and/or war.


The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it is safe to cross the street. I was crossing with a co-worker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red and/or green. Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?" She is a probation officer!

My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for minimal lettuce. He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.

We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener. I thought for a minute and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, "Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower." I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, "NO, it's not, Four is larger than two"

Have a good week - MB
