MISSION CAPSULE: Last winter, the compassionate Grade 4-6 class at St. Andrew’s Hespeler Presbyterian Church in Cambridge, took on PWS&D Farming for the Future Sunday School Challenge to raise money for a program that helps food insecure families in rural Guatemala. At a bake sale at the church, the class made $350.00 in sales on top of the $400.00 they raised through the collection of pop cans! The children donated the proceeds to PWS&D with the hope of helping vulnerable families get what they need to grow maize, vegetables and fruit trees for years to come. By working together, small actions can help families overcome challenges and build bright futures.
