MISSION CAPSULES: Whenever Jumai went out into his Nepali village, he would be cruelly mocked because of his ulcers, sore patches and swollen legs. Jumai was living with leprosy and could not afford to pay for ongoing treatment. Visiting the PWS&D supported Shining Hospital changed everything. When Jumai was admitted, he was struck by something more than the timely service and quality medical care - the love and acceptance he felt was a welcome relief after years of shame and judgement. “I feel at home in this hospital,” says Jumai. “I receive such good care.” Filled with thanks for PWS&D Jumai looks forward to a better future.

MONDAY, JANUARY 28th, 2019 - Last Monday, for various unavoidable reasons, a number of people notified us at the last minute, that they would be unable to attend Theology on Tap. When only three members were still available it was decided, due to the meatiness of the section, to postpone this week’s discussion to next week. So, January 28th, Book III of Mere Christianity will be discussed. Please hold members of Theology on Tap in your prayers.
