MISSION CAPSULE: Refugees are part of our human family and are entitled to their rights to peace and protection. In Bangladesh, almost 900,000 Rohingya have settled in squalid shelter conditions after escaping terrifying human rights abuses and violence in Myanmar. Refugees are still arriving and the nearing monsoon season puts those living in camps at risk of floods and landslides. Join PWS&D as we respond to the needs of the Rohingya with Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the ACT Alliance by helping deliver life-saving food packages as well as shelter, hygiene kits, water and sanitation services and psychosocial assistance. As we respond to pain and despair in Bangladesh, let us pray for refugees on their journey to find safety and peace in other parts of the world.

STUFF:

You know you are living in 2018 when …..

Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don’t have an e-mail address.

You pull into your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help carry in the groceries.

Every commercial on TV has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

Leaving home without your cell phone, which you didn’t even own for the first 20 – 30 years of your life, is now cause for panic and you turn around to go back and get it.

You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

Have a good week MB
