MISSION CAPSULES: During the Advent season, we celebrate God's amazing gift - Jesus! This gift changed the world. It is with this same spirit of generosity that we too can make a difference for our sisters and brothers across the globe. Each week of Advent, PWS&D challenges individuals and congregations to share the gifts of hope, peace, joy and love with those living in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. In the midst of poverty, injustice and disaster, the Christ light shines.

ANNOUNCEMENT; Over the past 17 years, or so, our team have, every Monday, of every week, visited a Boarding Home in the Beach. They have done this without fail and have provided friendship, music, sharing, food etc. Most of all they have been Christ to these ten men. It has taken several of the men, years before they were completely comfortable and trusting, but in the long term, our team have been the most important visit that they have had. Unfortunately, the Boarding House itself, has been sold and the men have had to disperse and make new living arrangements. This is a very sad event for our team, the Ministry itself and for the Boarding Homes residents. Please hold them all in your prayers.
